Enacted in March 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (today commonly referred to as the "ACA" or "Obamacare"), has dramatically changed health care delivery.
This massive law — with tens of thousands of pages of rules, procedures, guidance, and interpretations — will ultimately impact every American. Beginning with a Senate floor colloquy clarifying the ACA's application to professional employer organizations (PEOs), NAPEO has, as implementation unfolded, monitored efforts of federal agencies, state insurance departments, and groups such as the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.
PEOs bring invaluable efficiency for small businesses seeking help with the law's complexity. NAPEO is devoting tremendous resources to keep member PEOs up-to-date to handle ACA issues.
Information for NAPEO Members can be accessed on the Member Healthcare page or through the Member Resource Center by use of your company ID and password. If you are not currently a NAPEO Member and you would like access to member exclusive healthcare content as well as all the additional benefits of membership, please contact NAPEO's Membership Team at (703) 836-0466.
The PEO Industry and Healthcare
Long before the passage of the ACA, PEOs worked with small and mid-sized business clients to provide employees access to health insurance. Today, PEOs facilitate such access for as many as 4 to 6 million people.
PEOs have a proven track record of promoting compliance with federal and state employment/workforce laws and providing big business benefits to small businesses and their employees. Under the ACA, NAPEO believes PEOs can continue to serve your needs as they have in the past.
