Join us to hear her discuss the latest developments on:

  • how the ACA may affect existing bargaining agreements that require employer contributions to support multiemployer health and welfare plans;
  • how the ACA rules for eligibility (particularly the so-called 90-day Rule) affect multiemployer plans;
  • how moderate to low-wage workers covered by existing health plans might benefit from the ACA;
  • whether/how certain fees and assessments provided for under the ACA (i.e., "Cadillac Plan" tax, the "Health Insurer Provider Fee," and the "Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute Fee"), may be applied to multiemployer plans; and
  • how multiemployer plan sponsors should prepare for compliance audits
