ACA changes
Benefit advisers and their employer clients have spent much of the year trying to inform themselves about the rules, requirements and looming deadlines of the Affordable Care Act ; a task made more difficult by further deadline delays and rule changes announced by the Obama administration in 2014. Most notably, President Obama announced in February that employers with fewer than 100 employees will not be required to provide health insurance to their employees until 2016. The benefit broker/agent industry is “constantly in a state of change. Every day we’re expected to morph into whatever is necessary to accept the change the alphabet soup of federal agencies and the ACA throws at us,” says Ronnell Nolan, president and CEO of Health Agents for America Inc.
