As insurance brokers trained in risk management, it is our job to analyze and identify risks that might adversely affect our client's business objectives. Compliance with federal statutes and regulations in the areas of insurance, labor and taxes is a daunting task for many of our employer clients. With the NAHU Compliance Corner, you now have a one-stop place to find the majority of federal statutes that affect the employee benefits world.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) has transformed the world of employee benefits and most NAHU members are now devoting a significant amount of their time to helping clients comply with the law and prepare for its coming changes. NAHU's PPACA resource page contains all the links, guidance and tools agents and brokers need to advise employer clients about their rights and responsibilities under the new law.
Agents and brokers who are looking for additional training and understanding about the health reform law should consider enrolling in NAHU's exclusive PPACA certification program. Developed by experts in both PPACA and employment law, this high-level 10-hour course, which has been filed for CE in all 50 states, will ensure that you understand the key technical components of PPACA and are better prepared to counsel your clients on upcoming health coverage changes, responsibilities and opportunities. For further information, visit the PPACA Certification page.
While PPACA represents new and extremely significant compliance obligations for employers and employee benefit specialists, it is certainly not the only federal requirement health insurance agents and brokers need to know about! NAHU's Compliance Corner also provides up-to-date resources on the following topics:
NAHU provides all members with exclusive access to a free monthly webinar focusing on a specific detailed compliance topic of interest. These one-hour webinars are generally held monthly on the first Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. Eastern.
