Effective January 1, 2014 National Health Reform (the Affordable Care Act) will change the manner in which employers determine their benefits strategy.
New premium tax credits, cost sharing subsidies, Medicaid expansion, health insurance taxes, rating factor changes, affordability standards, employer shared responsibility assessments (now delayed to 2015) and a federal individual mandate are changing the health policy landscape for employers. The Massachusetts Health Connector will play a key role in the delivery of individual and small group health insurance products, subsidies and employer-related health reform policy.
Come learn about these changes along with clear, up-to-date information about the ACA and what it will mean for the employer community. Hear from state officials about implementation. Engage in a dialogue with state officials about questions you may have. Gain an understanding about ACA on a practical level.
