SPRINGFIELD — The Affiliated Chambers of Commerce of Greater Springfield (ACCGS), in partnership with the Greater Chicopee, Easthampton, Holyoke, and Westfield chambers of commerce, will present a panel presentation on the state of the Massachusetts health-plan market on Saturday, June 27.

Massachusetts Assoc. of Health Plans President and CEO Lora Pellegrino and Senior Vice President Eric Linzer will lead the discussion from 3 to 4 p.m. at UMass Center at Springfield, 1500 Main St.

The purpose of the event is to brief employers on the current state of the health-plan market, what the Affordable Care Act (ACA) changes mean, how employers can address the impact of the ACA changes, how mandated benefits and other changes at the state level may exacerbate the challenges employers face, and what employers can do to get involved.
