Enacted in 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Act) imposes numerous legal standards on the healthcare market in the United States, changes how healthcare is delivered and purchased by millions of Americans, and creates substantial obligations for healthcare insurance companies, providers and employers.  Many provisions are intended to be funded by a variety of taxes and offsets, most notably a penalty assessed against many employers that do not offer affordable, minimum healthcare coverage to employees.  The Act also requires many employers to report the value of healthcare coverage to employees, report health coverage details to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and to automatically enroll employees into a qualified healthcare plan.  In some cases, eligible employees could purchase their own insurance from a state-managed Health Benefits Insurance Exchange. The Act also gives employers new tools to help employees make better healthcare decisions and to facilitate health and wellness initiatives in the workplace.

Now that New Jersey is required to implement the Act, employers need to prepare for the law’s impact by January 2014, when most of the Act will be fully operational. 

This seminar will cover:

  •     What constitutes a “full-time” employee for coverage,
  •     Automatic enrollment,
  •     The “Shared Responsibility” assessment,
  •     Premium subsidies for employees,
  •     Expansion of employment-based wellness programs
  •     Employee Protection from Discrimination and Retaliation
  •     The function of the NJ Health Benefit Exchange, and
  •     Employer reporting requirements
