The applicability of the play-or-pay mandate is one of the more complicated and confusing aspects of the Affordable Care Act and it will affect virtually every employer and employee in the U.S. in some way. 
The question is: How can you know if your company has to provide health care to staff next year or face a penalty?

Dinsmore Attorney David Whaley addressed the landscape of employer reactions and redrafting in connection with the ACA. He helped you understand the terminology, the deadlines, the reporting mechanisms and the penalties involved, as you prepare for a January 2014 implementation.

In this complimentary 60-minute webinar, David discussed:
  • Planning for the employer-level “Pay or Play” requirement 
  • Employer’s plan vs. Exchange coverage: Tough employer decisions 
  • Individual Pay or Play mandate: Premium tax credit 
  • Affordability requirement: How will you calculate the cost? 
  • Defining eligibility (Who is a full-time employee?)

Anyone with HR or benefits responsibility, including In-house Counsel, HR Professionals, Corporate Executives and Business Owners should not have missed this webinar.
