What you need to know about health care reform

As more provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) become reality, employers should be increasingly aware of the law’s impact on their organization and on employees.

Who is impacted:

  • Employers who DO offer health benefits to employees must comply with ACA requirements.
  • Employers who DON’T offer health benefits to employees should be familiar with the law and help employees understand their options.

What to do now:
