    Health Care Reform:  Preparing for the coming storm


    What are some of the latest updates since the initial release of the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act, and how will their implementation impact on your company?

    Under PPACA, the "shared responsibility" provisions define two distinct measurements for employers.  The first addresses whether an employer is a "large" employer for the purposes of determining compliance.  The second is determining those employees of an employer that are "full-time" employees for the purposes of determining eligibility for benefits and potential penalties for not providing minimum essential coverage.  This presentation will look at both sets of rules, including, reporting requirements, calculating the number of employees employed, measuring hours using IRS Safe-Harbor guidelines, the application of the "measurement period," "administrative period," and the "stability period," potential penalties and compliance deadlines. Brief Q and A session will follow.
