Taking Your Medicine

Affordable Care Act Symposium- Presented by

GSLevine-Logo-FIN (2)

Starting January 1, 2014 every American will be subject to The Affordable Care Act (ACA). Some of ACA’s reforms are already in effect for employers and their group health plans, though many of ACA’s key reforms will become effective in 2014. Depending upon your employee count, different provisions of the ACA may apply to you. To prepare for this next phase of ACA reforms, employers should review upcoming requirements and make sure they have a compliance strategy in place. Among the topics we’ll discuss are:

  • Healthcare and insurance requirements/benefits for the various types of employers under the Affordable Care Act, including (i) small employers and proprietorships with one or two employees, (ii) employers with over 20 employees, (iii) employers with under 25 employees, (iv) employers with over 50 employees, (v) employers with under 100 employees, and (vi) employers with over 250 employees.
  • Tax credits and implications
  • What is the employer shared responsibility?
  • What are the primary timelines and deadlines you should be aware of?
  • State-based health insurance exchange – say what?
  • Compliance-the required components and what you need to know
  • Strategic business plan on healthcare reform
  • Implications for companies with offices in different states
