Program length: 90 minutes

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) is over three years old now, and employers and employees alike are still confused about it. The federal government has been issuing regulations at a staggering pace. The recent decision by the Obama administration to delay the large employer mandate muddied matters further.

You can't afford to be confused: PPACA implementation is happening now. Critical decisions need to be made in the coming months, and your organization is relying on you for clear information.

In this program, Sheldon Blumling of the law firm Fisher & Phillips will fill you in on the latest legal developments and provide you with a roadmap of steps you need to take now and in the coming months. Among the topics to be covered:

  • Ongoing notice and disclosure obligations.


  • Preparing for future IRS reporting requirements.


  • Healthcare Exchanges: What they are and how they may fit in with your company's coverage options.


  • Preparing for the large employer mandate: Using the delay wisely to ensure your company is prepared.


  • Preparing for other obligations that will become effective in the near future, including Automatic Enrollment and nondiscrimination requirements.


  • What your company should be doing now to stay on top of Healthcare Reform "moving target."

This 90-minute session includes the answers to these questions and more, as well as a live Q&A session with audience members.
