Mr. Sheen, who is also Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the online publication “The ACA Times” (www.ACATimes.com), will speak on Oct. 1 on “How to Minimize ACA Compliance Headaches and Healthcare Costs.”
“The Affordable Care Act has enabled millions of Americans to obtain quality health insurance, but it has also introduced complex regulatory requirements, and the risk of costly penalties, for employers,” Mr. Sheen noted.
“Companies now must collect and report detailed information about their employees, and often about the families of their employees, that they never tracked before,” he added.
“This has resulted in substantial new responsibilities for the staffs of Human Resources, Payroll, Risk Management and Information Technology departments. Many companies are still unprepared to meet filing obligations that begin early in 2016.”
Attended by more than 700 industry professionals, the Employment Benefits Summit is presented by Employee Benefit Adviser Magazine and the Workplace Benefits Association. It attracts senior HR executives, insurance brokers, agents and advisors, and is supported by Aflac, Mass Mutual, Aetna, AIG, Cigna, United Healthcare and more than 100 other companies serving the employment benefits needs of employers. First Capitol Consulting is a Platinum Sponsor of the conference.
