Polls show that Americans are divided on the subject of the Affordable Care Act (ACA/Health Care Reform). According to Forbes Magazine (Aug. 22, 2012) support for Health Care repeal has ranged from 40 percent to 63 percent since March 2010 and opposition to repeal has ranged from 32 percent to 48 percent over the same time period.
On the other hand, a Reuter’s poll (along with numerous other polls) shows that individual elements of Health Care Reform are popular. For example, such features as the elimination of pre-existing condition restrictions, the ability to cover adult children to age 26, and even requirements that employers must either provide coverage or pay a penalty consistently poll above 60%.
As a result, some aspects of Health Care Reform may be here to stay – at least in some form.
In this program, we take a step towards a meaningful ACA analysis — evaluating what the election results could mean for the various requirements and their timing under the ACA (and which requirements, if any, might be most likely to be targeted for modification or repeal), and deeply focusing on the impact to employers.
Both the President and Congressional leadership will play a critical role in shaping the future of the ACA. This event will help employers understand how the election results could impact their organization and how they can develop a long-term plan for their Human Capital Management strategy – and in particular the requirements under Health Care Reform..
In an effort to identify strategies for cost control and risk mitigation, we will address the following topics during our event:
* Overview of election results – both Executive and Legislative
* Possible impact of the elections on the ACA
* In particular the session will focus on the known and anticipated requirements related to:
o Establishment of Healthcare Exchanges and related employer responsibilities
o Employer shared responsibility (“Play or Pay”) – requirements, alternatives, and risks
o Automatic enrollment
o Non-discrimination testing for insured plans
o Excise tax on high-cost health coverage (beginning in 2018) and its possible impact on employer-sponsored plans today
o The future of COBRA
