The new health care reform known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (also called Obamacare) will be effective on January 1, 2014. The new law is far reaching and expected to be very complex. To get a better understanding of this upcoming transition, SoloPoint Solutions attended a conference hosted by Filice Insurance titled “Preparing for Health Care Reform” held at the Santa Clara Convention Center on April 24th.
This event explained in detail what the Affordable Care Act is; who is eligible and what employers are responsible for. SoloPoint Solutions provides contract engineering staffing and employee leasing so in effect, it has many employees who will be eligible for insurance coverage. Being on the leading edge of employment SoloPoint Solutions is proactively ensuring that it is and will be in compliance with all aspects of the new health care reform laws.
