CPI-HR recently educated over 120 employers and business executives on the latest Health Care Reform requirements and changes, during an information-packed seminar, “Health Care Reform: Is Your Company Ready for 2014?” Held in Independence, Ohio, the standing room only seminar attracted top Cleveland and surrounding area businesses. “There’s nothing in the Affordable Care Act that makes health care affordable, and as a matter fact, it will end up costing employers more,” stated Jim Hopkins, CEO of CPI-HR and one of the speakers at the seminar. Hopkins, and Compliance Director Peter J. Marathas spoke to an audience eager to learn how to best position their companies for 1/1/2014, which is only 16 months away.
One of the highlights was an introduction to a Pay or Play Calculator. This tool shows employers what their costs will be to purchase health care directly or buy through the Exchanges in 2014. With the recently upheld Patient Protections and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) law, this tool aids employers in their strategic benefit planning process. The Calculator takes into account all the current laws and uses several plan assumptions that are specific to various employer groups. Free to CPI-HR clients, the tool is also available via individual consultation
Employers in diverse industries said the seminar helped them better understand this serious business topic.
“They spoke to the heart of the matter… simplifying the overly complex Affordable Care Act and how it is going to affect my business and employees,” said Glenn Smith, president and CEO of World Synergy. “They shared some shocking information on the Affordable Care Act and who really benefits from this law.”
“Our thanks for the very informative seminar on Health Care. We learned a lot and feel better prepared to make future decisions,” said George Kappos Jr., Chief Financial Officer of Erieview Metal Treating Co.
CPI-HR will continue to provide seminars, webinars and other educational events on health care topics, with the next scheduled seminar titled:
“Reducing Health Care Costs: How to Leverage Claims Data to Develop Innovative Cost Saving Solutions” will be held 1:30 to 5 p.m. September 12 at Embassy Suites in Independence, Ohio.
