As insurance brokers trained in risk management, it is our job to analyze and identify risks that might adversely affect our client's business objectives. Compliance with federal statutes and regulations in the areas of insurance, labor and taxes is a daunting task for many of our employer clients. With the NAHU Compliance Corner, you now have a one-stop place to find the majority of federal statutes that affect the employee benefits world.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) has transformed the world of employee benefits and most NAHU members are now devoting a significant amount of their time to helping clients comply with the law and prepare for its coming changes. NAHU's PPACA resource page contains all the links, guidance and tools agents and brokers need to advise employer clients about their rights and responsibilities under the new law.
Click here for resources regarding agent and broker training for the federally facilitated and state-based marketplaces as well as other resources to address problems with individual and SHOP marketplaces.
While PPACA represents new and extremely significant compliance obligations for employers and employee benefit specialists, it is certainly not the only federal requirement health insurance agents and brokers need to know about! Click here to view other compliance topics.
NAHU provides all members with exclusive access to free monthly webinars focusing on a specific detailed compliance topic of interest. These one-hour webinars are generally held on the first Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. Eastern.
Compliance Corner webinars in the past have focused on W2 reporting, exchanges, summaries of benefits and coverage, the MLR rebates and more. Presentation slides, recordings and supplemental materials are available for members.
