Club Management ACA Compliance Update: No More Cap on Deductibles

May 8, 2014 10:52:00 AM

Through a bipartisan effort, Congress has permanently removed the deductible cap for small group health plans under the Affordable Care Act.  Initially, ACA had a provision that required capped deductibles for individual and small group health plans of $2,000 per individual and $4,000 per family.  The Health and Human Services Department issued a waiver for 2014 when it became apparent, that for many it would be difficult to comply with the deductible cap requirement. This provision has now been eliminated in an effort to help issuers design plans that work for small business owners.  This change will now enable the small business trend towards High-Deductible Health Plans coupled with Health Savings Accounts.  Of course, there are still many other plan requirements defined in the Affordable Care Act for small employers to comply with and many issues still remain unknown.

In response to the current and sometimes confusing Federal and State employment regulations being imposed on small to medium sized businesses that can present economic challenges for non-compliance; ClubPay has enhanced Human Resource offerings to help Club Management stay abreast of the evolving changes and ensure compliance with the latest rules.  Join us for a complimentary ClubPay HR Education Webinar discussion on ways to help your Club avoid or be prepared for a DOL Wage and Hour audit.  Don’t miss out on this "priceless" opportunity to learn from our Club Industry HR Expert the Dos and Don'ts for responding to an investigation.
