The Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA) will be hosting the second webinar in a five-part series on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on Sept. 24 from 11 to 11:30 a.m. EDT.
Beginning in 2014, under the provisions of the ACA, small businesses (those with less than 50 full-time employees and full-time equivalents) will have the option of purchasing coverage through a Small Business Health Option Program (SHOP) available through the state or federal marketplace. Employers with fewer than 25 full-time equivalent employees may be eligible for the small employer tax credit.
Attendees will learn how to comply with the employee notification requirement effective Oct. 1, the status of the state and federal marketplaces, what options are available to small employers and provisions of the ACA that impact employers including tax credits, premiums and fees.
The first webinar on Sept. 18 addressed employee eligibility for Health Insurance Exchanges. The slides and recording will be posted on AAIA’s health care reform center at www.aftermarket.org/healthcare, where AAIA members have exclusive access to additional information on the ACA and can register for a discounted health insurance and penalty (HIP) report specific to their company.
The webinar series will continue throughout the fall of 2013 running through December, and will focus on important aspects of the Affordable Care Act. Presenter Anita Baker specializes in providing assurance, tax and consulting services to plan sponsors and third-party administrators. She is responsible for CliftonLarsonAllen’s national employee benefit plans practice and is a leading consultant on the impact of health care reform on group health plans and employers.
