SIIA Legislative/Regulatory Conference Announcement

With politics on everyone’s mind this week, we would like to take this opportunity to announce SIIA’s Legislative/Regulatory Conference, scheduled for March 14-16, 2011 in Washington, DC. Complete conference information, including registration forms, can be accessed on-line at, or by calling 800/851-7789.

Given the dramatic federal election results, there will be many new faces in Congress next year so early 2011 will be a critically important time period for SIIA members to be visible in our Nation’s Capitol.

As discussed in previous communications, SIIA fully expects that there will be several “hot” topics next year and we will cover them all at the conference, such as:

  • Proposed legislative amendments to PPACA
  • PPACA regulatory oversight hearings
  • DOL/HHS studies on self-insurance
  • Re-introduction of legislation to modernize the LRRA
  • Re-introduction of Medicare Secondary Payer Act amendment legislation

There is no substitute for the being there in person, so you are encouraged to make plans to join us. Not only will you be able to attend great sessions with high profile speakers, you will also be able to participate in our popular “Walk on the Hill” programs where attendees will be able to meet with their elected representatives on Capitol Hill.

In the meantime, watch for SIIA updates previewing the new political environment and what it means for those companies involved in the self-insurance/ART market place.

We look forward to seeing you in Washington, DC.
