The curtain has come up on the ACA's employer mandate, and employers are encountering myriad implementation issues as they try their best to comply.  Timely (and non-retroactive) enrollment of employees emerging from initial measurement periods, adequacy of coverage offers, and dueling age 26 coverage mandates are a few of the concerns.  Edward Fensholt, J.D., Lockton’s Director of Compliance Services, will share his experiences and will also give his opinion on the impending Supreme Court decision on the legality of providing health insurance subsidies through the federal insurance exchange.  This decision significantly affects the ACA, particularly the employer mandate in states served by the federal exchange.

Also, the long awaited final ACA reporting forms were released by the IRS earlier this year. Are you ready to complete them in first quarter of 2016? JoAnne Pettijohn, Solutions Consultant for Lockton, will discuss the IRS forms, data required to complete the forms, and current technology you may have or possibly need to purchase to help with your comprehensive ACA compliance needs.

Additional updates regarding the 2018 Cadillac tax (the excise tax on high-value coverage), public and private insurance exchanges, and wellness programs in the shadow of EEOC litigation efforts will also be provided.

A Senior Vice President at Lockton, Ed Fensholt, leads the firm's Health Reform Advisory Practice. He has 30+ years of experience as an attorney, 25 years concentrating in the area of ERISA and other aspects of employee benefits law.  Ed is a frequent lecturer nationwide on Health Reform and has testified before Congress on its impacts to employers.

JoAnne Pettijohn works closely with Lockton’s clients to develop a clear understanding of their objectives related to human resources, payroll, and benefits management solutions.  She assists clients with their vendor selection process, focusing exclusively on HR technology-related systems to support their HR objectives.  Prior to joining Lockton in 2013, JoAnne gained extensive experience in benefits, HR and payroll management through her roles at ADP and various carriers.
