Healthcare Reform Strategies

In years past, most employers only had to focus on a few federal compliance laws such as COBRA, HIPPA or ERISA. Although these laws were complex and required adherence, they rarely directly impacted an employer’s strategy related to employee benefits. That has now changed. The PPACA has created a whole new playing field that is forcing savvy employers to rethink historical practices and ask some new questions.
