Healthcare-related deadlines important to your business and your family are approaching:
Mid-September: Group health insurance renewal letters will be sent out to businesses in mid-September. We are expecting an average rate increase of 15% this year, so do not wait until then to prepare. The WIFS Team can help you strategize on the best course of action to manage your increased costs. We have options for you.
October 15-December 7: Medicare open enrollment affords policy holders the opportunity to make changes to their Advantage Plan or Supplemental policies. If your health or prescriptions have changed over the last year, or you feel you are paying more than you should, the WIFS Team can help you find the best plan for your current situation.
December 1: For organizations that have legacy health plans, December 1 is the final renewal date for those policies. The ACA requires business interested in staying out of the community marketplace to keep their current plan with no changes. Policies that renew this year will be in affect until October 1, 2016 only, so plan for an earlier renewal process in 2016!
January 1: Businesses with 51 or more employees will be subject to payroll reporting requirements that kicked in for 100+ employers earlier this year. Click here to read more about these new requirements. Organizations with 2-50 employees are still not subject to these regulations.
