Counting Employees under Health Care Reform (Part 1) (2 P.M. ET/ 11 A.M. PT)

11 Mar 2014

The IRS has issued the final employer-shared responsibility ("play or pay") regulations and employers promptly need to determine if they are large enough for the requirements to apply to them. The employer's size also determines when any penalties will start to apply. Employers need to be up-to-date on which workers must be counted and which of an employee's hours must be considered. Employers also need to understand how full-time and part-time employees are counted and how related companies affect the employee count.

In this 90-minute webinar, we will help you understand how to determine your status under the new rules, and how the transition rules may help you. (The actual requirements for large employers, including the optional measurement and stability periods, will be covered in a separate webinar.) If you have 50 employees, or think you might, you won't want to miss this informative, intermediate-level webinar.The presentation slides will be posted on the UBA website the day before the webinar.

HRAs, HSAs, and FSAs under PPACA

14 Jan 2014

The IRS has recently issued notices that will affect health reimbursement arrangements (HRA) and health flexible spending accounts (FSA). Beginning in 2014, most employers will not be able to have an HRA or a health FSA unless they also sponsor a group medical plan. Reimbursement of individual policies will also be prohibited. Employers now have more flexibility with their health FSAs, as some carryover of unused contributions will be allowed.

In this 90-minute intermediate level webinar, we will compare these account-based health plans, discuss how they interact, and explain how they are affected by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. We will also discuss the timing of any needed plan amendments.Register for this essential webinar while seating is still available! The retail price to the public is $149.
