    The health marketplaces/exchanges have enrolled many individuals, but are not without problems.  Lawsuits continue to be filed about different provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and a number of bills have been introduced in Congress to modify the law.  Meanwhile, the regulatory agencies continue to release clarifications and new regulations.

    To help you remain up-to-date with employer obligations and opportunities, as PPACA continues to evolve, in this webinar we will discuss:

    • The logistics of the      marketplaces and the challenges of choosing insurance, enrolling through      the marketplace, and accessing health care
    • Issues currently under      review by the U.S. Supreme Court
    • Pending legislation
    • Recent regulatory guidance      and clarifications
