The course was taught by James Napoli, of Constangy, Brooks, and Smith LLP and Alan Tawshunsky of the IRS, and covered a wide array of topics including:
· The Impact of ACA Insurance Mandates on Employer-Sponsored Group Health Plans
· Essential Health Benefits vs. Minimum Essential Coverage – How they differ and why it matters?
· Strategically Communicating with Employees about Healthcare Reform
· Fiduciary Fundamentals for Group Health Plans
· The Who, What, Where and When’s of the Employer Mandate Under ACA
· Public and Private Insurance Exchanges – What They Mean to Employers and Employees
· ACA: Practical Considerations & Litigation Avoidance
Jonathan Edelheit, President of the Healthcare Reform Center and Policy Institute said, “It is crucial that for employers and insurance executives to stay on top of the ACA to ensure they are compliant. The knowledge you receive from this live training is the most advanced education available. Being able to learn in person, to be able to talk to the instructor face-to-face and ask questions is the proven method to learn a complex subject. For healthcare reform, the best defense is a good offense.”
“It is essential to begin considering and implementing today the policies and plan designs that are meant to assure compliance with ACA's employer mandate,” said James Napoli. “ It cannot be stressed enough how time consuming developing and implementing a strategy towards ACA is, whether you intend to pay or play. The employer mandate delay is an excellent opportunity to avoid the crunch. Those who wait will inevitably miss something or otherwise stumble in their compliance efforts as they attempt to address a very complex set of laws in a shortened period. Remember, an employer can be 100% ACA compliant, yet violate a host of other state and federal laws. In order to be ready for 2015 or 2016, you should work toward compliance today. Failure to do so could lead to assessed penalties and possible litigation. Do not leave yourself or your clients subject to this risk.” One more roadshow will take place in Atlanta, GA on June 11.
