Many employers sponsoring group health plans are asking ….

What employee benefit plan-related changes are required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act?

When must these changes be implemented?

Will these changes raise costs, and what penalties and fees might my company face for non-compliance?

We have just issued a Law Alert that discusses these and other dilemmas facing employers sponsoring group health plans. We also have record attendance scheduled to attend our Employment Relations Seminar next Tuesday, May 4, 2010 at the Hilton Columbus at Easton Town Center, where we will be discussing "Health Care Reform: What Employers Need to Know." (For more details on this program, click here.)

As you can imagine, the impact of the health care reform on employers continues to evolve as the details of this legislation are finalized. (You may also wish to read our prior post from March 22, which was written prior to amendments in the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010.)

Stay tuned to our blog, as we will continue to discuss the complexities of the health care reform law and new developments in this area.
