2 What happens in 2014? Insurers prohibited from denying coverage due to a pre-existing condition AND Individuals must obtain health insurance 1. Their employer 2. The private market 3. The public Health Insurance Marketplace, or 4. Medicaid/Medicare Employers (50 and over) VOLUNTARILY offer affordable coverage to all full-time employees; penalty not assessed until 2015 Health insurance coverage purchased on the Exchange/Health Insurance Marketplace takes effect Medicaid expansion takes effect

3 What else happens in 2014? Health insurance companies can only rate you on: Age Where you live Tobacco-use Family size Health insurance coverage will grow more comprehensive; outof-pocket costs limited Health insurance coverage premiums/out-of-pocket costs could be subsidized on the new Health Insurance Marketplace

4 The Individual Mandate Beginning in 2014, all individuals (with some qualified exemptions) are required to obtain health insurance coverage. Penalty Levels (Penalties are paid per adult in household with 50% penalty applied per child in the household, with cap of $2,250 per family) 2014 Greater of $95 or 1% of taxable income 2015 Greater of $325 or 2% of taxable income 2016 Greater of $695 or 2.5% of taxable income

5 The Employer Mandate BEGINNING in 2015 each employer with 50 full-time equivalent (FTE) employees must offer coverage minimum essential coverage to its full-time employees (and dependents). Failure to do so could result in a penalty.* *Ways the Penalty Applies 1. Employer does not offer coverage & at least one full-time employee receives premium assistance on the exchange 2. Employer does offer coverage, but coverage is unaffordable & at least one full-time employee receives premium assistance on the exchange

6 What happens if I don t sign up for health insurance in 2014? No penalty will be assessed until federal/state income taxes are filed in 2015 Tax filing forms will likely require basic information on your health coverage; employers and insurance companies are required to verify individual tax filing If owed a tax refund in 2015, penalty can ONLY be withheld from refund IRS CANNOT garnish wages or take any other adverse actions they are authorized to take for failing to pay income taxes No health insurance coverage could mean other financial problems if medical issues require medical treatment without insurance

38 The ACA in 2014 KEY TAKEAWAYS & CONSIDERATIONS FOR EMPLOYERS AND THEIR EMPLOYEES/FAMILIES

41 ACA Impact: Large Employers 50 FTEs or More Employer Mandate Applies Employee Exchange Notification required Health benefits group or non-group more comprehensive (essential health benefits) Self-insured groups exempt from EHB Price point of coverage factors: New health insurance underwriting changes Comprehensiveness of coverage

42 Considerations for All Employers Employers (less than 50 employees) Employers (50 or more) No Coverage Offered Employers (50 or more) Fully Insured Employers (50 or more) Self- Insured Purchase small group coverage on the Exchange? If Exchange, select plans for employees or allow employees to choose? If no coverage offered employees pay individual penalty or purchase individual policies on Exchange or private market Assess employee demographics eligibility for premium tax credits? Pay the penalty or begin offering coverage (purchased on private small group market) to avoid penalty?* * Employers with less than 100 employees can begin purchasing coverage on the Exchange beginning in Assess cost-sharing and benefits to determine affordability Assess employee demographics eligibility for premium tax credits? Weigh the options - keep coverage or drop coverage, pay penalty, and send employees to shop on the Exchange? Are there other benefit options?

Weigh the options - keep coverage or drop coverage, pay penalty, and send employees to shop on the Exchange?

43 Other Key Considerations for Employers Plan renewal date Minimum essential coverage offer and employee/family eligibility for lower-cost coverage New out-of-pocket limits Enhanced wellness incentives Minimum value = opportunity to lower costs?

44 Key Takeaways Delay = opportunity to plan for workforce dynamics in 2014/2015 Delay = opportunity to re-assess benefit strategy in 2014/2015 Eligibility for the small employer tax credit? Develop communication strategy! Consult with benefit, tax and legal specialists!
