Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act: Employer Considerations and Responsibilities

March 19, 2013

Starting In 2014, an employer with 50 or more full-time employees that does not contribute sufficiently towards it group health plan and provide affordable minimum essential health benefits to its employees may become subject to substantial excise tax. This rule also applies to employers having full-time equivalent employees ( combining part-time, variable and seasonal employees).

These rules are complex and the decision whether to “play-or-pay” involves many factors and should be made on a case-by-case basis. In fact, some employers should have already started tracking employee hours worked. Each employer must weigh the financial, business and personnel consequences of its decisions in this regard.

This webinar will provide an overview of these new rules, analysis of their impact, and planning strategies.

Because open enrollment for State insurance exchanges begins on October 1, 2013, it is prudent to consider these issues as soon as possible as the resolution of these issues will affect your company’s health care package as of January 1, 2014.

Search Tips

Our Web site's search function employs a variety of techniques to help you make the most of your queries. In this tips section we use square brackets [ ] to signal queries, so [antitrust and litigation] is one query, while [antitrust] and [litigation] are two.

  • Exact phrases: Eliminate unnecessary search results by surrounding your search phrase with quotation marks. Placing ["project finance"] in quotes will return specific results and discard additional results that simply have the words "project" and "finance" peppered on a page.
  • Wildcard symbol: If you're not exactly sure how a piece of information you want is phrased, use the following symbol (*) as a word root expander. A search for [child*] will find not only "child," but also results with words like "children" and "childhood."
