    Program: Health Care Reform Update

    As of January 1, 2014, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires all individuals in the United States to have some form of health insurance or pay a penalty. This Act affects all businesses; employers have important decisions to make regarding health insurance. Businesses with 50 or more full-time employees may face penalties if they do not offer affordable coverage.

    This Health Care Reform & Benefit Update will provide up-to-date information on the current status of the Affordable Care Act, including employer responsibilities, opportunities and the latest changes, as well as an overview of benefit options, including defined contribution plans and private insurance exchanges.

    Specifically, we will discuss:

    • Discuss the changes to Health Care Reform and its impact on employers.
    • Explore available health care options and defined contribution plans.
    • Compare benefit alternatives employers have with healthcare reform.
    • Identify which of these benefits can be pre-taxed.
    • Explain how employees can access public and private exchanges.
    • Discuss how to continue to provide cafeteria, HSA and HRA plans.
