2017 Winter Compliance Seminar: The ACA Today and General State of Affairs

The Republican Party is in control of both houses of Congress and the Presidency. When it comes to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), “repeal and replace” has been the common phrase for some time. We are now getting a better picture of what may be in store for the ACA as well as other employee benefit rules.
This Hays Companies Research and Compliance seminar is intended to address what we believe employers should do in the short-term to make sure their benefit plans remain in compliance as well as possible long term impacts including, but not limited to, total repeal of the Affordable Care Act. There is no doubt that change is on the way. But what change and when? During the seminar we will discuss:

1.  What employers should do for the immediate future,
2.  Will the “Cadillac” tax be repealed? Will it be replaced? If so, with what?
3.  Possible Medicare and Medicaid reform (what does this mean)?
4.  Is full repeal of the ACA possible?
5.  Will there be a replacement plan?
6.  What are the implications for the individual market?
7.  Other possible new legislation or regulations,
8.  And possible future opportunities.

Date: Wednesday, February 8th, 2017
