GERMANTOWN, Md. — March 8, 2023 The HealthWell Foundation®, an independent non-profit that provides a financial lifeline for inadequately insured Americans, is honored to announce that its Chief Development Officer, Alan Klein, will moderate the panel: Deep Dive into the Nuts and Bolts of the Inflation Reduction Act during the Informa Connect Patient Assistance & Access Programs (PAP) Conference to be held March 20 – 22, 2023 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

The panel will take place during the Legal and Policy track on Tuesday, March 21, 2023, from 10:45 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. EDT. Joining Mr. Klein for the discussion will be Brian Connell, Executive Director of Federal Government Affairs, Office of Public Policy, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and Charles E. Collins, Jr., President, Healthcare Stakeholder Solutions. 

During the session, panel members will provide a better understanding of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and the impact it will have on patient assistance programs in the coming years. Areas of focus will include a review of changes that are being implemented to address inflation and how these initiatives target reducing out-of-pocket costs for beneficiaries. If you will be attending the conference, we hope you will join us for this timely discussion. 

The changes brought forth by the Inflation Reduction Act can be difficult to understand and, as a result, concerns and questions have become top-of-mind for patients, caregivers, providers and pharmacies,” commented Alan Klein, Chief Development Officer, HealthWell Foundation. “During the panel, we hope to outline the nuances of the law and provide a resource that may assist stakeholders attempting to navigate current and future changes.”
