Join us for a Complimentary Live Seminar.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) obligates employers to offer affordable, qualified medical insurance to all bona fide employees or face a penalty.

Our panel of Dinsmore and Ernst & Young LLP professionals will discuss the implications of the recently upheld health care law and what privately-held businesses need to take into consideration. You’ll learn what analysis should be performed before making the decision to continue offering health care coverage; how employers can address the “Pay or Play” mandate and the consequences for each action, as well as the employer reporting requirements that will go into effect over the next few years. Finally, we’ll discuss the additional Medicare tax impact on privately-held business owners and how to plan throughout the remainder of 2012.
