Headed to Florida for the annual NCCI AIS confab, one of the best-organized conferences in the workers’ comp world. Looking forward to NCCI Chief Actuary Kathy Antonello’s State of the Line presentation; will be live-blogging as she reveals the latest data on trends, costs, inflation and drivers thereof.
The powers-that-be have invited Charles Krauthammer back once again; the ever-irascible doc will certainly share his latest views on the political landscape, and for once I’m actually looking forward to it. If I have to listen to yet another neocon/conservative ideologue, as least this time he’ll be as cranky about his candidate as I am…
A few of the topics Mark Walls, Bob Wilson and I will be covering in our talk on Thursday afternoon will be the impact of the ACA on workers’ comp (spoiler alert – too early to tell), whether the Grand Bargain is still grand and/or a bargain, what’s happening to opt-out, and medical trends. Should be pretty lively, with ample-yet-polite-disagreement among the three of us.
Attendance is very solid this year; hope to see you there.
