The rules are changing and it might not be stretching the point to say there is actually a leadership revolution brewing.

Venable
Trade and professional associations that sponsor health plans for their members, and organizations participating in such plans, need to be aware of an important issue arising under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
