Counting employees under health care reform is not as easy as 1 – 2 - 3. The rules are quite complicated, and if not done correctly can have serious repercussions for your business. The final employer shared responsibility (“play or pay”) regulations have been issued and beginning in 2015, larger employers will need to either offer health coverage that meets the requirements of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) or pay penalties. Although the requirement is not effective until 2015, employers need to be gathering data and making decisions now.
In this 90-minute intermediate-level webinar, we’ll discuss in detail which employers are affected and what you must do to provide coverage that meets PPACA’s requirements. We’ll also detail the two methods employers can use to determine which employees need to be offered coverage, the recently issued reporting regulation, and how penalties will be calculated if the requirements aren’t met. (This webinar builds on information provided in our March 11 webinar. To review the slides for that presentation, go to www.ubabenefits.com. Click on Webinars – the slides are under Webinar Archive.)
The presentation slides will be posted the day before the webinar.
