Enrollment First, Inc. and First Staff Benefits Guide Businesses Through Maze of Health Care Reform

Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) April 11, 2013

Enrollment First, Inc. and First Staff Benefits, compassionate leaders in the health care industry, are preparing their clients for the host of challenges linked to health care reform and the ongoing implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

The two companies have tweaked their approach and are devouring the totality of the legislation while tackling health care reform with their clients -- one provision at a time.

“We want everyone to know that we’re in this together. We want to be ready before we cross that bridge,” said Hazen Mirts, president and founder of Enrollment First, Inc. “We understand the importance and significance that health care reform is going to have on everyone involved, and we want to be ready for it.”

Enrollment First, Inc. and First Staff Benefits are not only focused on the impact of health care reform, they are staying ahead of the curve by shifting their roles to that of educators, providing guidance and answers, instilling confidence and creating communications that inform, such as online tutorials, videos and FAQs with help from their legal aid, specifically focused on health care reform.

Mike Martens, CBC, LPRT/Principal of First Staff Benefits emphasized that making a mistake now could be very costly down the road.

“Is anyone else knocking on your door trying to guide you through this maze and take care of it for you?” Martens asked.

Failure to understand the ramifications of the imminent changes could lead to costly penalties, missed tax credits, time-consuming and expensive litigation, and lost opportunities for employees among other consequences. As a result, companies should waste no time in determining exactly how the ACA's extensive mandates might affect their operations.

The effects of health care reform are already being felt. Most recently, PCIP plans have been eliminated as an option for employers to offer their workers. However, the companies’ fixed indemnity limited medical plans currently offered are still valid options and exempt from health coverage requirements. Once law defines "minimal essential coverage," Mirts says they anticipate new options surfacing in the marketplace.

Affordability will continue to be a driving factor. Mirts says they believe many franchise employees will “opt out” of major medical options and look for some level of health protection via the fixed indemnity option. Working with clients to support ACA compliant solutions and providing affordable alternatives for employees who opt out will be key objectives in 2014 and beyond for both Enrollment First, Inc. and First Staff Benefits.
