  Download Brochure Need a brochure? Download the event brochure including a registration form you can fax or mail
An estimated ten million Americans enrolled for health coverage through public health insurance exchanges for 2014, and three million are enrolled in employer-based private exchanges in 2014, with a total of nine million projected to enroll in private exchanges for 2015 [Accenture projections - June 2014].

Now that public exchanges are entering the second open enrollment season, what does 2014 experience with enrollment trends, plan selection and initial operating and financial experience portend for public exchanges in 2015? Now that private exchanges have begun to mature and evolve, primarily with a defined contribution approach, and markets including large employers, pre-retirees and individuals, what does the private exchange experience and trends portend for their operations and offering in 2015?

Unique perspectives on 2014 experience and enrollment trends for each sector are offered by Shana Alex Charles, PhD, MPP,  Director of Health Insurance Studies and Research Scientist, UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, who has been focusing on aspects of the public health insurance marketplace environment; and by Simeon Schindelman, the CEO and Chairman of Bloom Health, founded in 2009 and one of the nation's leading private exchange exchanges.

Please join Bloom Health's Simeon Schindelman and UCLA Center for Health Policy Research's Shana Alex Charles on Wednesday, November 5th, 2014 at 1PM Eastern as they discuss applicable enrollment trends and the outlook for public and private health insurance exchanges in 2015.

Shana Alex Lavarreda

Shana Alex Charles, PhD, MPP, Director of Health Insurance Studies
Research Scientist
UCLA Center for Health Policy Research

Shana Alex Charles is a research scientist at the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research. As the Center's director of health insurance studies, she works with numerous projects, including the State of Health Insurance in California (SHIC) project and the California Health Benefits Review Program (CHBRP). The SHIC project acts as a statewide and national resource for health insurance information, creating and disseminating reports, fact sheets, policy briefs and on-demand data estimates. As a member of the cost analysis team with CHBRP, Charles estimates the impact of health insurance benefit mandates pending in the state's legislature. Charles is also an expert on health insurance data from the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS).

Charles's research focuses on discontinuous health insurance, particularly among low-income children, and its impact on access to care, and underinsurance among those with coverage. She also specializes in political issues surrounding health care reform at both the state and the national levels. Her most recent work includes an examination of immigrant children excluded from the health insurance expansions in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010; an evaluation of the availability of job-based coverage following the first wave of the Great Recession; and a new conceptual framework of underinsurance that includes access to care as part of the definition.

Charles received her master's degree in public policy from the UCLA School of Public Affairs and her PhD in health services from the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health.
