Connecticut's Health Insurance Exchange will be open for business on January 1, 2014! The state has just been awarded an additional $107 million for the Exchange. Are you ready? Kevin Counihan, will be providing an overview of what the Exchange will mean to the state and Connecticut's employers. Kevin has 30+ years of experience working in the insurance industry, including serving as the chief marketing officer for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts' Health Insurance Connector Authority.

The state of Connecticut implemented an aggressive Health Enhancement Program in conjunction with their last labor contract negotiation. The program is focused on improving employee engagement through incentives and penalties. Ninety-nine percent of the state's 50,000+ employees elected to participate in the program! And, the state forecast no change in health care costs in their latest budget! Dr. Thomas Woodruff will provide an overview of the program and insights into how they achieved such high participation rates! Under Dr. Woodruff's leadership, the state has also been at the forefront of health care delivery system reform. Dr. Woodruff will also share some of his thoughts on health care delivery innovation.
