    • The legal and practical challenges associated with provider-owned health plans;
    • The new methods of providing employee health care benefits, including private exchanges, onsite clinics, online and telemedicine, reference-based pricing and “skinny plans”;

    • How new health insurance companies are formed and how they will affect health care delivery and reimbursement;
    • Contracting issues, Affordable Care Act, and related compliance issues; and
