112 South 13th Street
Altoona, PA 16602
This month's speaker will be Brian Brumbaugh, owner of Preferred Benefits Specialists. Mr. Brumbaugh last spoke to the BCTP in January of 2014 on how the impending Affordable Care Act might impact local businesses and his analysis has proven remarkably accurate. Now, he'll give us an updated look about the outcomes from the ACA and what can be expected moving forward.
A Kaiser Family Foundation study reported this month that local residents seeking insurance through the federal exchange will see their provider options drop from 5 to 3 in Blair County, from 4 to 3 in Huntingdon County and from 4 to 2 in Bedford County. The same group also found that the average premium on the exchanges will increase 11% in 2017 while the average employer plan premium will only increase by 3%.
