Not All ACA 2013 Tasks Postponed
Don’t be fooled!
Not all aspects of healthcare reform are postponed. Employers face other compliance requirements during or by the end of 2013. Examples:
- Reducing waiting times for plan eligibility to no more than 90 days;
- Complying with the rules for the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) fee; and
- Notifying employees about the availability of state exchanges.
Opportunity for Course Reversal
This delay creates an opportunity for employers to test their compliance strategy for the Shared Responsibility provisions of the Affordable Care Act and to ensure they have the systems and procedures in place to fully comply when required in 2015.
