Health Care Reform 2013: Assessing the Game-Changing Rules

Alston & Bird hosted this program on February 7, 2013.  Employers need to act in early 2013 to be fully compliant with the Shared Responsibility (“Play or Pay”) provisions. This presentation discussed how to limit your exposure and avoid the significant fines associated with noncompliance. Should you pay or should you play? The following topics were covered during the program.

    • Identifying “applicable large employers” that are subject to the penalty 
    • Identifying full-time employees, including safe harbor methods and rules for determining who is a full-time employee 
    • Important exceptions and limitations on the penalties, including the new “substantially all” and controlled group rules 
    • Avoiding penalties by offering coverage that meets the “minimum value” and “affordability” conditions 
    • Essential transition rules 
    • Other recent ACA developments 
This seminar was held live in the Atlanta and Washington, D.C. offices of Alston & Bird.  Alternatively, we also provided a live webcast of the seminar so you may view the event from your office.  Log-in information was provided to participants who register to view the webcast.
