A Distinguished Panel of Experts Simplifies and Cuts Through all of the Political Rhetoric Surrounding The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act

How will the new health care law impact your senior care businesses, investments, and property values? These questions will be debated by a distinguished panel of experts in a fast-paced and interactive conference. The distinguished panel includes: Rick Matros, CEO of Sun Healthcare Group, Stephen Moses, President of the Center for Long-Term Care Reform, Hedy Rubinger, Partner at Arnall, Golden, Gregory LLC, Executive Association Directors (invited) and Steve Monroe, Moderator and Editor of The SeniorCare Investor. Best of all, you’ll be able to connect personally with any or all of the panelists when we open up the phone lines for live Q&A.

When President Obama signed into law The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in late March, many people cheered the changes that would lead to certain patient protections and increased access, but many others saw a flawed bill that will lead to higher deficits, higher taxes and health care rationing.  The only thing everyone can agree on is that it will have some effect on everyone, good or bad. 
Assemble your team and understand the specifics of how your investments will be impacted – the results may surprise you!  Find out:

What will happen to Medicare reimbursement?
