Overview
Affordable Care Act implementation issues continue to surface and provide challenges, due to both the phase-in of applicable provisions as well as recent agency guidance and evolving marketplace, regulatory and legal conditions. Not only employer Plan Sponsors, but all stakeholders including health plans, third party administrators, agents and benefit consultants, solutions providers, and contracting organizations need to keep conversant in the complex arena of ACA compliance.

This session will provide a Plan Sponsor compliance roadmap for current and upcoming ACA requirements and challenges. In addition to an update of the latest agency guidance, topics covered will include: current issues on pay or play compliance; an employer reporting update; IRS regulations on ACA related reporting requirements; plan design approaches to minimize potential Cadillac Tax exposure,  small vs. large employer size considerations; compliance issues related to private exchange participation; and a review of the most common 2014 mandate Plan Sponsor mistakes.
