New York University is offering a full-day symposium examining the Affordable Care Act: The Constitutionality of Reform, Its Implementation and Implications. It will be held on Friday, February 17, at NYU’s, Vanderbilt Hall at 40 Washington Square, South in New York City and will start at 9:30 a.m. and end at 4:00 p.m.

The event will feature three moderated panels, which will present a multifaceted view of the legislation, challenges to its constitutionality, and its implications for individuals and health care service providers. The first panel will explore the constitutional arguments for and against the Act as the Supreme Court prepares to hold oral argument on the issues. The second panel will explore the various methods for implementation of health care reform by federal and state administrations. Finally, the third panel will examine the ways in which the Act might improve, harm, or alter the delivery of health services to insurance beneficiaries, affect the health of the population, and change the business of healthcare providers.

Among the speakers are Sylvia Law, Elizabeth K. Dollard professor of law, medicine and psychiatry, New York University; David B. Rivkin, Jr., Baker Hostetler; Alan Weil, executive director, National Academy for State Health Policy; and Susan E. Voss, commissioner, Iowa Insurance Division.
