The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has made a number of significant changes to group health plans since the law was enacted over four years ago. Many of these key reforms became effective in 2014 and 2015, including health plan design changes, increased wellness program incentives and the employer shared responsibility penalties.
Additional reforms take effect in 2016 for employers sponsoring group health plans. To prepare for 2016, employers should review upcoming requirements and develop a compliance strategy.
This Health Care Reform 2016 Compliance Checklist provides a health care reform compliance checklist for 2016. Please contact Ardent Solutions for assistance or if you have questions about changes that were required in previous years.
