ACA Regulatory Roundup: The Top 10 Things You Need to Know Now
In December 2015, congressional lawmakers and IRS officials took multiple actions that affect benefits professionals—specifically, key ways they administer employee health benefits and comply with the Affordable Care Act (ACA):
- Congress delayed the ACA’s “Cadillac tax.” The excise tax on high-cost employer-sponsored health plans will now take effect in 2020, rather than 2018.
- The IRS pushed back reporting deadlines for the required Form 1094 and Form 1095.
- The IRS also updated rules affecting plan affordability provisions of the ACA—in ways that could trigger excise taxes for employers.
Join us for this online session to get a head start working through the important strategic and compliance issues that lie ahead.
Discussion topics include:
- Even with two years of extra time, what steps can/should employers take in the near future to lower plan costs and avoid the Cadillac tax?
- What ACA rules aren’t affected by the Cadillac tax delay that employers still need to keep on their radar?
- What lessons can employers learn now to ensure that 1094/1095 reporting is simpler and more efficient for 2016?
- How can technology play an effective and efficient role in overall ACA compliance and plan affordability?
