Unfortunately, a daunting array of Health Care Reform and ERISA requirements await many employers in 2015. These present a special test for most organizations.
This presentation will expose the most common myths associated with Health Care Reform and benefits compliance in 2015 and reveal the procedures that employers should be following. Topics include:
• Affordability, its 9.5%, right? Not always….Why many employers may be in for a shock with healthcare reform penalties
• Hour tracking and how status changes are viewed differently than in previous years
• I’m fully insured, why do I need a plan document?
• Upcoming IRS Reporting Requirements
1. Understand the correct way to determine affordability and what to do if you do not have an affordable plan today. 2. Understand the new rules around benefits eligibility with a reduction in hours, and why a COBRA event may not be triggered.
3. The difference between a plan document and the certificates of coverage provided by the carrier.
4. 6055 and 6056 Reporting Requirements, including timeline, items to report and methods of reporting.
