Providers face a multitude of challenges in contracting, particularly in the large variation among payers and lines of business. Commercial populations typically involve a different set of challenges compared to a Medicare Advantage population, and each payer has their own version of contracting. All of these considerations must be addressed by providers, both from a fee-for-service perspective as well as value-based. In this CCA health series webinar, speakers address some of the consistencies and inconsistencies across payers and lines of business, as well as considerations to be made to successfully manage these patients.

Confidence in yourself and your work can be imperative for both success and happiness in your professional life. The Women in Consulting Community is excited to host a session at the CCA Annual Meeting on this important topic that was also the latest focus of our book club. Through our book club discussions, we found the concept of ‘confidence’, particularly with women, has many layers and everyone has something to share and learn. We hope you can join us for an engaging panel discussion to hear speakers’ personal experiences on confidence and how we can build confidence in ourselves and the women around us. All are welcome to attend this session and we look forward to providing an engaging, interactive discussion. Neither CCA nor Women in Consulting Community membership is required to attend.

Social Security is a critical component of the country's retirement system, and in fact provides the greatest share of retirement income for many retired workers. The last major reform legislation in 1983 acted to raise tax revenue and increase retirement ages over time with the intent of building a reserve that would secure the system into the 2060s. Due to a number of factors, this reserve is rapidly being drawn down, and current projections indicate that the trust fund will be depleted around 2034. Absent another round of substantial reform legislation, current law requires an estimated 25% cut in promised benefits for current and future recipients to align benefit payouts to current payroll tax income. While nobody realistically expects drastic benefit cuts, political compromise in this area has proved very difficult. SO, what can we realistically expect to happen? Join us for this CCA retirement series webinar to learn more.
