Play-Or-Pay Under the Affordable Care Act: Short-Term Obligations and Long-Term Strategy
|Date / Time:
Are you 100 percent sure of the short- and long-term affects of the latest health care reform regs on your workplace and benefits policies? If not, you're hardly alone. With the slow rollout of new regs going into effect each year, most employers have lingering questions about rights - and obligations.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is a major concern for employers. The law's provisions include a cutoff for dependent coverage up to aged 26, prescription reimbursements for over-the-counter drugs in certain instances, and changes to W-2 reporting requirements for group health care.
And one of the biggest pieces of the health care reform puzzle - the individual mandate and the employers' play-or-pay requirement - poses even greater challenges. This provision goes into effect on January 1, 2014, which gives employers just a little over a year to create a game plan and iron out compliance obligations.
Don't get caught off guard - get up to date on critical health care reform changes, learn how to stay in compliance, and start preparing your organization and your employees now.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- The rules of the play-or-pay game
- Excise taxes your organization will be subjected to if you don't pay up by offering adequate coverage
- The play-or-pay questions every employer should ask before taking steps to terminate health care coverage
- What's involved with meeting the qualified health plan design requirements under the ACA
- The latest on recently issued IRS and DOL guidance related to play or pay
- And more!
You'll get real-world guidance on meeting emerging health care reform compliance challenges, all without leaving your office, in just 90 minutes. Register now risk-free for this informative and timely event.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
