The future of the ACA: A webinar

As if managing compliance with the Affordable Care Act wasn’t confusing enough, the election of Donald Trump and the appointment of Rep. Tom Price as Secretary of Health and Human Services has introduced even more uncertainty.

Trump’s condemnation of the bill and his promises to repeal and replace it have many businesses wondering what the future of the ACA will look like in 2017 and beyond, and if their reporting obligations for 2016 are now void.

While nothing is going to change in the immediate-term, and employers are still responsible for gathering the required data and fulfilling their 2016 ACA compliance requirements, the future of the Affordable Care Act in the post-election environment is uncertain. We’re hosting a webinar over the next few weeks to address the possibilities and provide guidance on what to expect.

Here’s what we’re going to cover:

  • 2016 reporting requirements. With the 2016 reporting season already underway, employers still must comply with 2016 ACA reporting deadlines – March 2, 2017 for 1095 fulfillment and March 31, 2017 for electronically filing with the IRS.
  • Possible “repeal and replace” scenarios. While repealing and replacing the ACA is one of Trump’s top priorities, immediate repeal of the law without a viable alternative would have great consequences. Instead of a complete repeal, administration may try to alter some provisions of the law while hanging on to those that are looked upon favorably.
  • What this means to you. With the future of the ACA unclear, you must stay up to date on current news and policies, while continuing to report as usual.

We’re offering this webinar three times, so be sure to register today.

  • Wednesday, Dec. 7 at 1 p.m. CST
  • Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 1 p.m. CST
  • Wednesday, Dec. 21 at 1 p.m. CST
