This provides a general and brief overview of HIPAA as it applies to charitable nonprofit organizations that provide care or services to underserved individuals.
Beginning January 1, 2015, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires most employers with 100 or more full-time employees or full-time equivalents to provide health coverage or pay a penalty tax for failure to do so. Beginning in 2016, most employers with 50 or more full-time employees or full-time equivalents are subject to the same penalty tax. This summary provides guidance on which entities are subject to the penalty tax, how the tax is calculated, and strategies to consider with respect to complying with the law.
Beginning January 1, 2015, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires most employers with 100 or more full-time employees or full-time equivalents to provide health coverage or pay a penalty tax for failure to do so. Employers with 50 or more full-time employees or full-time equivalents have another year to comply with the law provided that they satisfy certain requirements. This article provides a summary of those requirements and the consequences for failing to follow them.
When the one year delay in employer reporting and “pay or play” penalties was announced, many employers thought they could stop compliance considerations for a year at least. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is not going away and most provisions are effective January 1, 2014. ACA applies to employers, including nonprofits, and to essentially all individuals.
This webinar will help you understand:
• Are you a large employer (50 or more) that must “pay or play;”
• What is the “individual mandate” and how does it affect your employees;
• What can the insurance “Exchange” offer your organization; and
• What other ACA provisions may apply to your organization.
