It has been a little over a year since the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. During that time, employers have been working to keep up with the steady flow of guidance from federal agencies implementing this groundbreaking new law.

The Health and Welfare Team at Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP invitedĀ attendees to join us for our annual health and welfare planning conference. This year's conference focused on key health care reform provisions and regulatory guidance that may impact your planning for 2012. We also discussed provisions which become effective in 2013 and beyond that may affect your long-term planning. The main topics discussed were:

  • Current political and regulatory environment, including legal challenges
  • Key issues for plans retaining or losing grandfathered health plan status in 2012
  • New wellness program opportunities for employers
  • Update on rules applicable to non-grandfathered health plans
  • New Form W-2 reporting requirements
  • Upcoming changes effective beyond 2012
  • Self-reporting obligations and penalties for non-compliance
