The Affordable Care Act (ACA) continues to influence businesses everywhere and changes in the insurance sector are making even more waves. Mergers between health insurance carriers and political pressures to repeal or change various ACA provisions have many on alert. Regardless of where the law is heading, businesses still need to capture and monitor data in order to prepare accurate reporting for the IRS and avoid expensive penalties for non-compliance.
Within the last few years, the Cadillac Tax was put on hold, there have been several mergers of major health insurance carriers, and other regulatory changes have impacted the healthcare industry. Love it or hate it, ready or not, the ACA is continuing to put pressure on businesses as they navigate these changes while trying to monitor necessary payroll and benefits data. Just when you take one step forward, changes in the marketplace or legislation make you question whether you are moving in the right direction.
