Health Care Reform Timeline
There have been some big changes made to health care and more are on the way.Click the milestones to explore how the changes might affect you.
Early adopters of private health care exchanges shared their experiences this week at EBN’s Private Healthcare Exchanges conference in Chicago, with many reporting employee communication as one of their primary challenges in moving to the exchange model. Leslie Vander Gheynst, director of KWRI human resources with realtor Keller Williams, which has 100,000 real estate agents across the U.S., says communication and education was “extremely difficult because those agents are not focused on how the health care reform bill is going to affect them.”
We tend to think of health care as a local good. Most people use the doctor or hospital in their neighborhood. China does not export medical care. Health and life spans differ from country to country, even county to county. But when it comes to health care spending, the picture is starting to look more global. After decades when health spending in the United States grew much faster than it did in other Western countries, a new pattern has emerged in the last two decades.
Aflac's recent Workforces Report for Brokers recently divulged that nearly 50 percent of brokers are considering leaving the industry, due largely to a landscape vastly changed by PPACA. Employee health benefits have become an increasingly complex industry in the past four years — which is precisely the reason that a solid broker workforce is more needed than ever.
The Internal Revenue Service has issued final regulations on the tax credit available to certain small employers that offer health insurance coverage to their employees under the Affordable Care Act. As under the original law, the final regulations define an eligible small employer and requires the employer to pay a uniform percentage of the premium cost of a qualified health plan offered by the employer through the Small Business Health Options Program.
