9:45 to 11:45 AM - Big Picture: Potential Impacts of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on Nonprofits
We will focus on the big picture, that is, how nonprofits overall are and will be affected by ACA. How do new tax, regulatory and oversight procedures accompanying the ACA affect nonprofits? We will consider management issues for nonprofits, including how they provide health insurance for their employees, as well as mission issues, including who hospitals serve, how they relate to clinics, and how hospitals interact with communities through required community healthcare needs assessments.
11:45 AM to 12:30 PM - Lunch
12:30 to 2:00 PM - Potential Impacts of ACA on Nonprofit Service Providers
We will focus specifically on the potential impacts of ACA on nonprofit service providers. What are the implications of ACA for public safety net and nonprofit hospitals? How might ACA affect how different population groups receive care? What are the implications for the missions of human service organizations that provide specific services such as dental care or women's health? How will eligibility requirements impact service delivery? Which populations will fall through the cracks and how can they be assisted? What funding opportunities/challenges does ACA present?
2:00 to 2:15 PM - Break
2:15 to 3:30 PM - Issues for the Future of ACA and Nonprofits
The day will end with a discussion on the future of ACA and nonprofits. What new and anticipated regulatory issues arise with ACA? How does ACA sharpen the contrast and intensify the stakes between nonprofit and for-profit providers? As ACA is implemented, what role can nonprofits play in sharing information, building knowledge, and shaping ACA going forward? What structures might be necessary to provide feedback on efficiency and effectiveness? How can grantmakers and advocates effectively support nonprofits and their constituents in the knowledge-building and feedback processes?
