The Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) requirements and deadlines began on March 23, 2010, and continue to 2018 when the “Cadillac Plan Tax” is set to take effect. Employers should already have some provisions implemented, but many more are approaching quickly.
Over the last three years, the ACA has changed the health care landscape. We’ve seen the removal of lifetime limits on coverage and insurance companies blocked from refusing to cover children with preexisting conditions. In 2014, we’ll see a vast number of changes such as 90-day waiting periods, guaranteed availability of coverage, preexisting conditions prohibition for everyone, shared responsibility and more.
If you are struggling with keeping track of all the dates and requirements, view our An ACA Timeline Review webinar. We take a look back at how far we have come and also cover what is still on the horizon. Our topics include:
