The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce is putting together two, half-day-long seminars that aim to take a closer look at the impact of the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

The first seminar starts at 12:30 p.m. May 8 at the Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa in Lexington. Those interested in the Lexington event can register here. A second seminar starts at 8 a.m. May 9 at the Louisville Marriott Downtown. Those interested in the Louisville event can register here.

Registration is $229 for the public or $179 for chamber members.

An agenda or speakers list still is forthcoming, according to information from the chamber. Topics that will be covered include insurance premium increases, health benefit exchanges, growth in the individual insurance market, deadlines, taxes and accountable care organizations.

Major provisions of the Affordable Care Act are scheduled to take effect next year. With that in mind, experts are advising businesses to learn what their responsibilities will be under the new regulations.
