With January 1st rapidly approaching, the implications of the new ACA laws are changing how employers structure their wellness programs in order to remain compliant. To help alleviate confusion, The U.S. Department of Labor’s Employee Benefits Security Administration will host a compliance assistance webcast on Tuesday, September 17 that will discuss the final wellness rules under the Affordable Care Act.
The Affordable Care Act Compliance Assistance Webcast will provide employers, brokers, third-party administrators and others with practical information, helpful tips and clarification on the new law. EBSA staff will be joined on the webcast by representatives from the Department of the Treasury and the Department of Health and Human Services.
As discussed previously, a properly designed wellness program can help align financial accountability. Ensuring your program is compliant is the first step in crafting a successful wellness strategy for 2014 and beyond.
