Implementation of the most important parts of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is here. Are you ready for 2014? A BusinessWeek report said that while employers "have real-money decisions to make about health care next year, (they) apparently don't grasp the most basic elements of the health reform law.”
What is the ACA trying to do? What are the new employer requirements? With the one-year delay of the employer "pay or play" penalties, what are your organization's options and how can you plan to avoid or minimize penalties? These answers are vital to your employees … your CEO … and to you.
Be prepared! Discover a basic understanding of this complex law and learn how to prepare your organization and its employees. Listen to Health Care Reform: Employers' Workshop, which focuses on parts of the ACA that matter to employers in an easy-to-understand format.
