Below is the link to the August 13, 2013 UBA Employer Webinar Series: “Preparing for 2014 Open Enrollment”
The heart of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) takes effect in 2014. Even with the delay to the “play or pay” requirements, employers will need to make a number of changes to their plan designs. Open enrollment for 2014 will bring many questions from employees about their options and obligations and additional required notifications. To help plan sponsors understand what they need, and don’t need, to do, this webinar will cover:
- New plan design requirements
- Notices that should be included in your open enrollment packet (both new and ongoing)
- A refresher on Summary of Benefits and Coverage requirements
- Electronic distribution rules
- Basic information on who is eligible to enroll in the exchanges/health insurance marketplace and who will be eligible for premium tax credits
- The delay to the “play or pay” requirement, and how this affects employers
