Florida Chamber’s Insurance Summit to discuss state’s response to Affordable Care Act

in Uncategorized by

Florida’s response to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will take center stage at the Florida Chamber of Commerce’s Sixth Annual Insurance Summit on November 28-30 in Orlando. Policy makers, legal experts, healthcare stakeholders and business leaders will discuss what lies ahead for Floridians during the three-day conference, and will hear from the state’s top leaders including Gov. Rick Scott, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater, and members of the legislature.

The Florida Chamber’s annual insurance summit is a key forum to address emerging insurance-related issues expected to be topics of debate during the upcoming 2013 Legislative Session.

Citizens Property Insurance Corporation President and CEO Barry Gilway will discuss returning the state’s largest insurer to the insurer of last resort, and a panel of experts will address the need for closing an expensive workers’ compensation loophole that is forcing rates higher.  The state’s new no-fault/PIP auto insurance reform law, and property insurance reform measures enacted last year will also get a close look.
