Capitol Conference 2014 Breakout Summaries

Employer Compliance Concerns Track

Breakout One: It’s 2014, So Now What? - A Year to Prepare for the Employer Mandate (3:15 - 4:15 pm)

Enforcement of the employer mandate was delayed until 2015, but employers still need to prepare for compliance next year during 2014. Join an expert from the IRS to discuss how you can best assist your clients with the employer responsibility and employer reporting requirements in 2014 and 2015.

Breakout Two: Compliance Corner Live - Your Compliance Questions Answered (4:30 - 5:30 pm)

Join the ladies behind NAHU’s Compliance Corner site and webinars as they answer both the most common compliance questions posed to NAHU daily and concerns specific to your clients. Submit questions you’d like to see answered ahead of time to legislative@nahu.org.

The New Basics Track

Breakout One: ERISA 101 (3:15 - 4:15 pm)

Many people hear the term ERISA and think self-funded plans. But really, virtually all employer group health plans are subject to ERISA requirements and with greater Department of Labor scrutiny being directed at small employers, it's critical that all brokers be able to help their employer clients comply. Join ERISA Attorney Heather Meade for a review of the basics that you can turn around into a client opportunity.

Breakout Two: Medicaid 101 (4:30 - 5:30 pm)

With the expansion of Medicaid in many states, more and more brokers are encountering individuals who need coverage help and may be eligible for public assistance. Join Robin Rudowitz, the associate director of the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured, for a class that will help give you a better background on the basics of Medicaid eligibility and coverage and how Medicaid may interact with CHIP and subsidized coverage options.

All About Exchanges Track

Breakout One: Access Opportunities for Agents in Public Exchanges (3:15 - 4:15 pm)

Everyone knows that the current open enrollment season for the new health insurance exchanges has been fraught with access issues. Join Kim Holland, executive director of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, Chad Hogan from Quotit and Phil Boyle from Access Health CT for a discussion focused on new enrollment opportunities for agents in development including direct enrollment, enrollment with the assistance of web-based entities and improvements for agents within the public exchanges themselves.

Breakout Two: Private Exchanges - New Options for Employers (4:30 - 5:30 pm)

Most of the exchange-related media attention has focused on public exchange access for individuals. However, in the group market private exchanges are flourishing as an option. This session will include presentations from those on the forefront of developing private exchanges and examine all of the new choices for employers today including defined contribution models and exchanges built on self-funded and fully insured platforms.
