  • Why Should You Attend
  • The legislative and regulatory environment
    related to group benefit plans is constantly
    changing. The
  • penalties associated with these changes are such
    that what you dont know can hurt you.
    Significant
  • new penalties apply, starting in 2015, for large
    employers that do not offer all full-time
    employees
  • minimum essential coverage. Lesser penalties
    apply if minimum essential coverage is offered,
    but it is
  • not affordable or does not meet minimum value
    standards. Employers with 50-99 employees may
  • qualify for transitional relief in 2015 however,
    there are requirements that must be met in order
    to
  • qualify. If employers do not meet those
    requirements, they will be subject to penalties.
    Furthermore,
  • the regulators have changed the rules related to
    minimum essential coverage and some plans that
    were
  • thought to meet the requirements no longer do so.
    It is now clear that all large employers must
  • establish measurement and stability periods, even
    if they do not have any variable-hour employees.
