There seems little doubt the coming year will bring more change in U.S. health care policy than at any time in the last half-century.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) April 14, 2009
Ceridian Corporation, a leading provider of managed human resource, employee benefits administration, tax filing and payroll outsourcing solutions, announced today it will sponsor an educational Web forum May 5, 2009, to help companies cope with the coming challenges of health care reform.
“President Barack Obama has set a goal of enacting sweeping health care reform in 2009, linking sustainable economic recovery to providing affordable health care to all Americans,” says Jim O’Connell, Ceridian executive consultant, government relations, and the Web forum’s presenter. “There seems little doubt the coming year will bring more change in U.S. health care policy than at any time in the last half-century.”
Health Care Reform 2009: What to Expect and What It Could Mean to You is the next free presentation in Ceridian’s quarterly Web forum series for HR, benefits and payroll professionals. The forum will be broadcast live at 1 p.m. EST on May 5, 2009. Those interested in attending can pre-register on Ceridian’s Web forum registration page.
The May forum will focus on health care reform legislation expected to happen this year, and the potential compliance impact those changes will have on your organization and employees. Some of the key points addressed will include:
- The wide ranging consensus for health care reform legislation
- Key policy questions Congress and the White House must address, including tax policy for employer-provided coverage
- What is meant by “universal health coverage”
- The primary policy options being discussed – and what they might mean to you
A replay of Ceridian’s most recent Web forum is available at Understanding the New COBRA Subsidy Law Under ARRA. The COBRA forum was broadcast live five times in March and April, each session to a sellout crowd.
