Bending the Cost Curve on Health Care
The ACA requires CFOs to take charge of their health-care costs.
CFO Insights: Bending the cost curve on health care
With the U.S. Supreme Court’s blessing and the security of the 2012 election results, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (or ACA) is rolling out nationwide. And while many of the law’s major components–the mandate to buy insurance and the expansion of Medicaid for example–take effect in 2014, others do not kick in for several years. That does not mean companies should be complacent about the law or their health-care costs–not by a long shot.
The ACA will require companies–and in particular, their CFOs–to take charge of their health-care costs and manage the process like others in their financial planning and analysis process.
In this issue of CFO Insights, we dissect health-care costs and ask what CFOs can do to limit those costs now.
