Plan Sponsor has a weekly feature to help plan sponsors understand what they need to do to prepare for the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). Groom principals, Christy Tinnes and Brigen Winters, serve as the health care reform experts and field weekly questions regarding the new law. The weekly questions are compiled and published each month in the “Second Opinon” column in Plan Sponsor Magazine.
Over the last several months, the Departments of Labor, Treasury, and Heath and Human Services have issued a series of FAQs regarding the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). This month, the column summarizes some of the key issues addresses in the FAQs.
