Not a day goes by in the national media when the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare, isn't discussed. Companies have received negative national attention for reducing employee hours and laying off workers to lower healthcare costs, and for not offering company health insurance. The question arises, what's really going on here?
Learn about the individual mandate and the employers' play-or-pay requirement and how it poses even greater challenges. This provision goes into effect January 1, 2014, which gives employers a year to create a game plan and iron out compliance obligations. An expert panel will discuss the requirements arising from the upcoming law change in 2013 that companies must comply with, as well as fines and penalties outlined in the 1,400-plus page law.
This webinar, sponsored by Paycom, is approved for 1.0 HRCI credits and will cut through the noise about the Affordable Care Act, providing HR leaders and business owners details into 2013 requirements, Medicare holdings, and healthcare spending caps. 2014 requirements and beyond will also be discussed, as well as what employers can expect as far as costs, co-insurance, and plan limitations. Attendees can register for the webinar at http://b4j.co/ACAwebinar or by visiting the Blogging4Jobs website.
The panel of experts will keep attendees up to date on critical health care reform changes, instruct on how to stay in compliance, and how to start preparing organizations and employees now before it's too late.
