The ACA and Architects (Video)

By Shervan Sebastian, Manager, Federal Relations


How does the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act affect you, your family and your profession?

The short answer: in a host of different ways.

The AIA understands that, as this law goes into effect, members will have questions on best practices, the specific changes the law will make and how they and their firms should prepare for the provisions going forward.

To help the architecture community prepare, the AIA’s presentation series is publishing video of a live webinar held for members in December 2012 featuring Sarah Dash, a member of the research faculty at Georgetown University’s Health Policy Institute in Washington, D.C.

Sarah is presently leading a comprehensive review of state health insurance exchange implementation as well as studying additional private health insurance market reforms and their impact on consumers and patients, making her an exceptionally well-versed speaker on the ins and outs of this legislation.

Her background includes serving as a senior health policy aide to Sen. Jay Rockefeller, Chairman of the Senate Finance Subcommittee on Health, and Rep. Rosa DeLauro during the development, passage, and early implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

The presentation is immediately available here.

Following the debut of this video, next week the AIA will publish “The Crowdfunding Initiative” presentation that featured the panel of Ben Miller, Daniel Miller and Tobias Holler, AIA, discussing the use of crowdfunding as a financial tool for architecture projects.

Stay tuned! These are just a few of the programs and projects the AIA is developing to keep members informed about government policies that affect them.
