Employers, governmental entities and even employees, brokers and consultants are all still after 4 years trying to understand the impact of HealthCare Reform on employee benefits. Defined Contribution Health benefit plans are again, and have been many times since 1978, being explored as a viable option. Why there is demand, who should be covered, and how it works with PPACA will be explored. Private and Public Exchanges and Cooperatives will be explained and recommendations as to what employers and their brokers can do for the rest of 2014 and 2015 will be made.

This presentation is designed to address the latest Benefit which is called a Defined Contribution Health which can be funded with Employer contributions to a FSA, HRA, or even to a HSA. We will look at whether there are limits as to funding levels and its impact on discrimination testing. We will also look at Private and Public Exchanges versus the growth of Cooperatives in each State and new voluntary benefits like Telemedicine and how it could work with Partial or Full Self-Funding will be addressed.

Questions and Answers will be addressed at the end of the presentation.

The employer mandate final regulations were released on February 10th and there were some significant changes that employers need to be aware of right now. The remainder of 2014 is the planning year and the decisions you make now with your workforce will have a financial impact on your health plan next year. We are going to help clarify and define the rules surrounding the “pay or play” requirements whereby employers will pay penalties if they don’t offer coverage, or coverage that meets the minimum requirements in 2015.

This presentation will address the following key components to help employers prepare now: 1. Who is subject to the employer mandate in 2015? Hint: This was changed from the previous requirements and is revised with the February 10th update. Employers over 100 full-time equivalent employees needs to pay particular attention.

2. How do you measure your variable hour employees to determine if they are required to be offered coverage to avoid penalties in 2015?

3. What are the varying testing and measurement options to follow this year under the special transition rules?

4. What implications are there for contingent workers, meaning temporary employees or independent contractors?

5. How do I avoid any litigation pitfalls inherent with PPACA implementation?

6. What is my checklist and next steps to ensure my company is compliant with the requirements?

Dependent Eligibility Verification Audits are an increasingly integral part of health care cost containment, ERISA compliance, and PPACA "Pay or Play" analysis. On average, 4-8% of Dependents enrolled in company benefits are NOT eligible. This costs employers 10's of thousands, 100's of thousands - even millions of dollars annually. Time and Money are the most common objections to conducting an audit, along with fear of adverse employee reaction. This webinar explores Best Practices, mistakes to avoid, and the substantial ROI achieved from a comprehensive dependent audit. Participants will learn what fraud in a benefits plan looks like, how prevalent fraud really is, and what type of savings they can generate for their company with an audit.

Benefit plans are subject to a seemingly never-ending procession of compliance requirements, and even minor problems can lead to significant consequences for employers, fiduciaries, and participants. Fortunately, there are a number of ways you can deploy plan documents and summary plan descriptions to minimize the likelihood of problems, and when Murphy’s law inevitably rears its head, the IRS and DOL offer a number of correction programs that can be used to cure the most common benefit plan ailments. In this session, you will learn practical plan drafting techniques to help you avoid compliance problems along with the (relatively) painless ways that common problems can be corrected under IRS and DOL guidance.

Preparing for this race requires an understanding of the implications of the ACA for your organization – and identifying where you have an opportunity to turn this regulatory challenge into a strategic opportunity to bend the cost curve of benefits, achieve ‘employer of choice’ status, and grow your business at the same time. The data tracking and reporting requirements alone can be daunting, and when you add affordability, minimum value and minimum essential coverage requirements to the healthcare benefits equation, compliance costs and potential penalties can take a heavy toll.

We’ve learned that 90% of organizations studied in a recent International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans survey claim they have moved beyond a “wait and see” approach-- and more than half of organizations are beginning to develop tactics to deal with the implications of reform.** Are you one of them? Developing, implementing and managing an effective ACA strategy for your organization is the goal for this marathon--and here are some topics we’ll discuss during this webcast to help you train for your race:

  • Address ACA requirements for employer-sponsored group health plans under just-released regulations
  • Describe pending court challenges to the ACA
  • Review strategies to avoid penalties
  • Identify the impact of new fees and taxes
  • Avoid triggering the 2018 excise tax on high cost health coverage

A fundamental disruption in America's health insurance market is well underway. For years the employee benefit purchasing experience has consisted of the employer choosing benefits, setting deductibles, deciding on co-pays, and shifting costs to employees to help pay for those choices. The end result hasn’t been pretty. Deductibles have increased. Co-pays have increased. Despite ever rising premiums, an employee can easily spend $5,000 or more out-of-pocket even with insurance coverage.

Learn why so many companies are moving to defined contribution health plans and private exchanges to break the cycle of ever increasing cost as employees become knowledgeable consumers and active participants in the benefits purchasing experience.

Employer sponsored health plans have evolved significantly over the past few years, and employers have access to a myriad of tools and resources to assist them in managing risk, performance, and efficient utilization within their health plan.

Basic services such as claims payment, disease management, data analytics, etc. have become so complex and use terms that have become so nebulous in their meaning, that employers need to have a better grasp of the capabilities of each aspect of their plan. Additionally, they require a deeper understanding of the roles and responsibilities of each piece of their plan, and how those pieces come together to form a complete program.

With Health Care Reform as the catalyst, we will deeply explore each aspect of both a fully-insured and self-funded health plan. We will also discuss what high performing companies, vendors, and employers are doing, and what you should be asking of your partners.
