Re-election of Obama Fortifies Health Care Reform

What this means for Employers’ Group Health Plans

November 9, 2012

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) has been upheld by the United States Supreme Court. This week’s re-election of President Obama is viewed by some as a mandate for implementation of the ACA. While it is likely that efforts will continue to modify and even repeal certain provisions of the ACA, employers and their group health plans have a number of additional requirements to implement in the very near future. Timely implementation of, and compliance with, ACA is necessary to avoid significant monetary penalties as well as potential lawsuits and audits from participants and the federal agencies responsible for oversight. 

Please contact us to assist you with the imminent changes that face employers and their group health plans, and for a refresher of the ACA provisions that should currently be in place. You may review our chart, or our recent presentation for an ACA timeline.
