Will you be ready for the day after the Affordable Care Act’s public exchanges go live?
At 2 p.m. ET on Oct. 2, EBN and EBA will offer a web seminar on issues relating to ACA implementation and what they mean for employers – whether or not they plan having their workers participate in ACA marketplaces. Hosted by SourceMedia’s Employee Benefit News Group Editorial Director David Albertson, the webinar will include speakers such as Rodger Bayne, president of the Benefit Indemnity Corporation.
Topics of the hour-long, real-time seminar are set to include updates on the functionality of state and federal exchanges, the mandate that employers educate on health care marketplaces, the union push for qualified health plans and enrollment in individual and small business exchanges. The web event is designed for businesses of all sizes, as well as the brokers, advisers and third parties who consult and assist them.
Americans at large remain demonstrably confused over ACA and its applications; wise plan sponsors will use benefits communication to stay ahead of the curve on employee inquiries. Any further delays of ACA mandates will also be discussed.
