Webinar Will Review New Reporting Requirements of ACA Employer Mandate
Still time to register finance and HR departments for Monday’s program

As part of the Affordable Care Act, all employers with 50 or more employees must offer health insurance to their full-time employees or pay a penalty. Data showing whether an employee has elected to take advantage of employer-sponsored health insurance coverage must be formally reported to the IRS in 2016. To meet this new requirement, hospitals must begin collecting data as of Jan. 1, 2015. CHA will hold a webinar next Monday, Nov. 17, from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. (PT), to explain how to comply with the new requirement, including how to collect the right data, which departments will be impacted, and an overview of the IRS forms and how to complete them. Presenters also will review employee considerations, including which employees must be offered coverage and how to determine full-time status. CHA encourages hospital finance and human resources staff to participate. For more information and to register for this members-only webinar, visit
