MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Health Care Administrators Association (HCAA), a leader in advocacy, education and networking for the self-funding industry, announces its 2015 Executive Forum to be held February 9-11, 2016 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas will feature Senator Tom Daschle as the opening keynote speaker of the event.

On the Keynote Session…

It’s safe to say that politics hasn’t been “business as usual” lately. From unlikely Republican frontrunner candidates, to fluctuating poll numbers in the Democratic race, to instability in the market, global immigration issues, our decaying infrastructure, and the continued and evolving discussion around Obama Care (including the proposed Cadillac tax)—the factors impacting the year ahead are more varied and more significant as each week passes. As the architect of the Obama healthcare reform initiatives, Daschle will offer expert perspective on the implications of a range of possible future scenarios, revealing insight into what individuals, businesses and the healthcare industry can expect in 2016 and beyond. In the keynote session, former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle will draw upon his more than 30-year career in political service to deliver his predictions of the who, the what and the why that will shape the political landscape over the next year.

“We are incredibly pleased to have Senator Daschle with us this year,” said HCAA Chief Executive Officer Carol Berry, CSFS. “He’s a truly compelling speaker with a great amount of experience and knowledge to share. I’m certain that his political perspective and healthcare policy insights will keep our members and attendees on the edge of their seats.”

In addition to the opening keynote from Senator Daschle, the two-and-a-half-day event will feature educational sessions on a variety of pressing self-funding topics. All HCAA members, as well as non-member TPAs are invited to attend this conference. Registration and more information is now available on the HCAA website.
