Compliance Corner Webinar

Many large employers are assessing the options to comply with PPACA and avoid the penalties. Large employers are required to offer minimum essential coverage to 95% of full-time employees to meet the requirement of offering coverage. Minimum essential coverage (MEC) does not equal minimum value coverage. Technically, MEC is something less than minimum value.

This webinar will discuss the distinctions between minimum essential coverage and minimum value. We will look at the so-called “skinny plans” that have been developed to meet MEC and discuss whether these plans may be part of the compliance solution and the pros and cons of this strategy.
