Aircare Crews Staffing announced today that they are coordinating an open informational session on individuals’ healthcare benefits and the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This session targets U.S. based Pilots, Flight Attendants and Mechanics that work in business aviation in a capacity where they are responsible for their own healthcare coverage.

"Those crewmembers who distribute their work across multiple employers, or work too infrequently to qualify for employer-based plans, are unfortunately left to figure things out on their own. We want to share our resources to provide some guidance."

Aircare Crews Staffing announced today that they are coordinating an open informational session on individuals’ healthcare benefits and the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This session targets U.S. based Pilots, flight attendants and mechanics that work in business aviation in a capacity where they are responsible for their own healthcare coverage.

Representatives from a well-known benefits provider, who act as a provider for Aircare, will lead a discussion that focuses on the complexities surrounding business aviation and ACA. The objective of the session is to provide guidance and resources available to those who need to address requirements mandated by ACA. With the implementation ACA every working adult in America is now expected to carry healthcare insurance coverage or face tax penalties levied at the Federal level.

“Those who enjoy the benefit of full-time employment can, and do, look to their employer for access to ACA-compliant plans,” said Jeffrey Roberts, CEO of Aircare International, “but those crewmembers and mechanics who distribute their work across multiple employers, or work too infrequently to qualify for employer-based plans, are unfortunately left to figure things out on their own. We want to share our resources to provide some guidance.”

Roberts adds that many in the business aviation industry are confused about parameters surrounding employee/employer eligibility, access to insurance products, required coverage levels and what lies ahead in the future. He hopes that this session will equip attendees with a better understanding of compliance requirements and solutions available to those who are not insured.

Attendees will gain understanding of eligibility parameters, specifically as they are being handled in the aviation industry, as well as gain exposure to resources to obtain insurance coverage that best-suits those who work as contractors and flextime employees in aviation.

Aircare’s meeting takes place on Wednesday, November 19th from 2:00pm – 3:00pm in meeting room N203 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. All are welcomed to attend.

Aircare is exhibiting at the 2015 NBAA convention in booth N3513.
