Because April 3rd is an MDJW holiday, the April presentation will be on April 10, 2015 at noon Central time.  Mark Dyer, managing partner of MDJW’s Dallas office will present “The Affordable Care Act – A Tool to Reduce Future Medical Claims?” 

This course provides an overview of how the Affordable Care Act may be applied to claims involving future medical expenses.  It will address the key provisions of the Affordable Care Act, will discuss the collateral source rule and how the Affordable Care Act may change the applicability of the collateral source rule to claims involving future medical expenses.  It will also address how the mandates, requirements and changes of the legislation directly impact settlements, damages, negotiation and trial strategies in personal injury litigation.
