The Institute for Professional Care Education (IPCed) is holding a free educational webinar on December 11, 2013 at 11 a.m. to address the impact of the Affordable Care Act on senior care agencies and how they can prepare for the 2014 changes.
Health care reform has left many senior care employers feeling unprepared and ill-equipped to make educated decisions about their benefit plans. As 2014 approaches, there will be major changes to the health insurance industry that could impact these agencies’ ability to do business.
"With the delay of the employer-shared responsibility rules, now is the time for senior care agencies to make sound business decisions about health care reform before the law makes those decisions for them,” said IPCed CEO Sharon Brothers, MSW. “We’re very pleased to be offering this webinar as a resource to our clients and other home care and assisted living professionals."
IPCed Training Specialist Jennifer Waldron will share information about the online and classroom caregiver training resources available through IPCed.
The webinar presenter is Ryan McArton, JD, Senior Advisor of Regulatory Affairs for Marsh & McLennan Agency. McArton will discuss what senior care employers need to know about health care reform and provide guidance on how to prepare for 2014 and beyond. This free, one-hour webinar is approved for one CEU by the National Association of Long Term Care Administrators (NAB/NCERS) and the Society of Certified Senior Advisors (CSA).
McArton provides guidance on employee benefits and health care reform regulatory issues to Marsh & McLennan Agency clients and teams. He advises clients on compliance issues including HIPAA, COBRA and other state and federal regulations.
