Health Care Reform Compliance: 

Dangerous Employer Mistakes to Avoid

 We will outline the following major dangers to employers:

  • Exchanges – What is the truth behind exchanges?  
  • Taxes – Are you aware of the upcoming taxes & fees?
  • Measurement Period – Do you know who to cover in 2015?
  • Employer Reporting – Are you prepared for this huge administrative burden?

Event registration begins at 9:00 am, with the session beginning at 9:30 am.
