August President’s letter
Ready, fire, aim…or is it ready, aim, fire???? Well when it comes to Health Care Reform (PPACA), which way will you answer the question? Are you ready or are you catching up or perhaps you are running way behind through no fault or your own. It is an overwhelming legislative action with a million moving parts.
Since the Supreme Court upheld most of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), it is important that we all get up to speed. SHRM is always a great resource and has a lot of information at your fingertips at http://www.shrm.org/hrdisciplines/benefits/Articles/Pages/HealthCareReform.aspx.
To make matters even more complicated certain parts of PPACA have different effective dates and some have already taken place, some coming in the future with 2014 being a big year for PPACA. SHRM has a very helpful timeline that you can simply click on to get up to date information on what is going to be coming in 2013, 2014, 2015 and beyond. Not to mention, there are articles, webcasts, frequently asked questions and much more! Don’t forget about SHRM’s Express Request when you need a quick answer to a Health Care Reform question, or any question for that matter. SHRM also has HR Knowledge Advisors that you can reach via phone, e-mail and live chat!
