Upcoming Events

  • Symposium: State-Based Health Insurance Exchanges – The Way Forward

    Sep 04, 2014

    Wieboldt Hall, 340 E. Superior St., Chicago

    This symposium will provide a forum for a broad-based discussion about the potential advantages and disadvantages of operating a state-based exchange. We will hear from executive directors of several State-based health insurance exchanges discuss both successes and challenges of their first year of operation. The discussion will aim to identify managerial insights to inform policymakers, regulators, industry stakeholders and consumer advocacy organizations on how best to establish, operate, and support state-based health insurance exchanges.

    True to our Kellogg values, this conference is a collaborative effort between Kellogg and the State of Illinois’ Health Insurance Marketplace.

    We hope to make the most of our time together through the formal program and networking opportunities. We are delighted to host you at Kellogg and look forward to exchanging ideas and perspectives with you.

    On behalf of the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, we thank you for joining us.
