Affordable Care Act (ACA)

The Affordable Care Act (ACA), is aimed at increasing the rate of health insurance coverage for Americans and reducing the overall costs of health care. It provides a number of mechanisms — including mandates, subsidies and tax credits — to employers and individuals to increase the coverage rate. Additional reforms aim to improve health care outcomes and streamline the delivery of health care.

While the legislation has received a lot of attention, there remains much to learn about its impact to businesses large and small alike. Rehmann can help clients by providing assistance with calculations as well as helping to understand the mandate and changes to the law.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) stands poised to usher in sweeping changes for 
many businesses. Multiple regulations and shifting timetables, however, make 
it difficult to measure — and almost impossible to predict — what those changes 
can mean for your business.

Introducing my aca partner

The ACA has employers asking a lot of questions about reporting compliance.

To help companies get answers, Rehmann has partnered with Apple Growth Partners who created my aca partner to guide employers through the complexities of health care reform.

Ready Solutions

Although there have been a number of recent administrative delays enacted that impact the ACA, employers need to continue to plan for it. 

Implementing the ACA’s sweeping changes will require careful attention to upcoming deadlines and the work required to meet them. One of the biggest milestones yet is when the Health Insurance Marketplace went into effect October 1. Mere months from now, on January 1, 2014, the individual mandate goes into effect, along with refundable and advanceable tax credits to individuals and families, small business tax credit expansion and more.

Even for those dedicated individuals administering the new program, there are still questions and matters to work out.
