California's Health Insurance Exchange and Consumer Market: 2016 And Beyond 
The Golden State made history with millions of residents enrolled in commercial and government health plans as the Affordable Care Act began to take shape in 2014 and 2015. With open enrollment having just commenced and new players in the market, what will 2016 look like, and what challenges will it present?

Oscar Health, an upstart plan, will make its debut in the California market through the exchange. Although headquartered in New York City, it is run by entrepreneurs with deep experience in Silicon Valley and is backed with hundreds of millions of dollars in venture capital. Will its edgy marketing approach succeed?

Meanwhile, analysts say that as the ACA has matured and been mainstreamed into healthcare delivery, the enrollment stream that has fattened up the bottom lines of a variety of insurers could be petering out – for now.

Please join us on Friday, November 6, 2015 at 1PM Eastern, as John Pickett, JD, MBA, Head of Network Development for Oscar Health, and Shana Charles, MPP, PhD., professor of health sciences at California State University, Fullerton discuss California's Health Insurance Exchange and Market: 2016 And Beyond.
