The Health Care Reform Act was the most sweeping reform of our nation’s health care system since Medicare.  While much of the Act will be phased in for “grandfathered plans,” there are significant issues employers have to deal with now, before open enrollment season arrives.  Here’s what we’ll address: 

  • How Health Care Reform affects the open enrollment season
  • Plan design decisions required for 2011
  • Provisions of Health Care Reform that affect all plans, regardless of “grandfathered status”
  • Implications in Massachusetts and interaction with state mandates and Health Connector
  • Long-term plan considerations in light of the employer “pay or play” requirement and the “Cadillac Tax”

Other issues that employers will need to address by the end of the year…

  • Schedule C reporting of service provider fees
  • EFAST2 Filing
