Cruzing into New Healthcare Rules
by R&I Consultants
Though Republican Texas senator Ted Cruz pulled an all-nighter talking against Obamacare this week, you never know what will happen. Take advice from our health insurance consultants in Atlanta, and be sure to get your company’s healthcare in order now rather than later.
Why? Time is getting close to the date where people can purchase health insurance through the Marketplace. With this application, people can look for coverage if they don’t have any or look for other options if they do.
Since there have been lots of other changes and updates over the past several months, the Department of Labor has created a direct link for employers and employees to view that will help answer any questions you may have.
Here is the link: www.dol.gov/ebsa/pdf/FLSAwithplans.pdf
Additionally, here are a couple of other places that you can find out more about the healthcare reform:
1. www.healthcare.gov/: This site includes details about the Marketplace, enrollment, getting lower costs on coverage, health insurance basics, rights, protections, the law, prevention and more.
2. www.dol.gov/ebsa/healthreform/index.html: This site lists information about regulations, coverage options, waiting periods, wellness programs, coverage of preventive services, automatic enrollment, essential health benefits, multiple employer welfare arrangements, grandfathered health plans and so much more.
Please feel free to call our office with any additional questions. Don’t let this crucial time just “cruz” by, get in the know now. Just contact Donna Gross, our Life & Health Benefits Practice Leader, at 678-681-6552.
