The Evolution of Health Care Reform: What Businesses Need to Know

It is crucial for businesses to respond to the changing regulatory landscape, as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“ACA”) continues to evolve. Some recent updates center around the implementation of various components of the legislation, while others focus on the obligations of individuals and businesses under the new system.  The only constant in this process — is that businesses can expect health care reform to continue to evolve over time. Accordingly, business leaders must understand the current regulatory environment and be ready to adapt to future changes.

Fraser Trebilcock attorneys Beth Latchana and Mark Kellogg spoke this week at the Institute of Continuing Legal Education’s 27th Annual Tax Conference. In their overview of health care reform, they detailed most important aspects of the ACA, including: the health insurance marketplace, employer classification, the Pay or Play Mandate, reporting requirements, group health plan mandates, the individual insurance mandate, the Small Business Health Option Program, and the Small Business Health Care Affordability Tax Credits.  To view their slideshow, click over to our slideshare.
