The ACA: A Never-Ending Story
Tuesday, June 14, 2016 | 2:00 p.m. Eastern / 11:00 a.m. Pacific
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has placed numerous obligations and responsibilities on applicable large employers (ALEs) and employers who sponsor group health plans. Many requirements and regulations have been recently released or updated since March 2010, and it can be difficult to stay on top of the many moving pieces of ACA compliance.
This webinar will:
- Briefly review the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) fee, when it is due, and how much is owed
- Give an overview of the Transitional Reinsurance fee (TRF), when it is due, and how much is owed
- Provide best practices on what to do when an employer discovers it missed a PCORI or TRF payment
- Discuss the process for correcting 1095-C and 1095-B forms that were issued to employees
- Discuss the process for correcting 1095-C, 1094-C, 1095-B, and 1094-B forms that were issued to the IRS
- Discuss the annual limits on contributions for individuals and families with high deductible health plans, as well as the annual limits on out-of-pocket expenses
- Discuss how the self-only limitation applies to individuals with both individual and family coverage, regardless of whether they are enrolled in a high deductible health plan or not
- Provide the indexed amounts for affordability and penalties under employer shared responsibility provisions
This 60-minute basic webinar will help employers get up to date on many of the components of the ACA that have recently been released or updated.
The presentation will be posted on the UBA website the afternoon before the webinar.
