Federal health care reform is topic of forum Friday in Buffalo

A forum on the latest developments in federal health care reform will be held Friday morning at BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York’s downtown Buffalo headquarters.

The insurer and the Buffalo Niagara Partnership are hosting the event “Health Care Reform: What’s Been Accomplished? What’s Next?” as businesses, consumers, insurers and providers prepare for the Nov. 15 start of the second open enrollment period for the nation’s health insurance marketplaces.

A panel of national and regional experts will offer their thoughts and Scott P. Serota, president and CEO of the BlueCross BlueShield Association, will give the keynote address. Panel moderators are Dottie Gallagher-Cohen, president and CEO of the partnership, and Jerry Zremski, Washington bureau chief of The Buffalo News.

The event, which is limited to partnership members and guests of BlueCross BlueShield, has reached its full capacity.
