PPACA - The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA)
What is it and how is it going to work
PRESENTATION: The PPACA affects all of us either as individuals or as employers. There have been many requests for information on this very relevant act. This presentation will explain some of the major provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and how these provisions will change how individuals and businesses will be purchasing health insurance starting January 1, 2014. The presentation will also cover employee eligibility for the employer offered health insurance. There has been talk of changes to these deadlines. Where possible the speaker will address these changes as well.
GUEST SPEAKER: Our guest speaker, Doug Walsh has been the Employee Benefits Manager at David White & Associates since 2007. At David White’s he is responsible for providing sales and educational training on group and individual medical coverage to the twenty eight financial advisors that work at the firm and to keep them abreast of any changes in the laws that pertain to these coverages and the industry. He personally advises seventy businesses regarding their group medical programs and the changes in laws that affect their coverages. The California State Bar has sponsored insurance programs marketed by AI & PS (Association Insurance & Pension Services) owned by David White & Associates since 1971. These sponsored programs consist of long term care programs - one provided by John Hancock Life Insurance Company and one provided by MetLife; and of a disability insurance program which is provided by Union Central Life Insurance Company.
