Web Site Helps Employers Understand Health Reform
Grand Rapids-based Priority Health Monday launched a new Web site to help employers understand what health care reform means for their business.
The new site is called www.UnderstandingHealthReform.com. It features:
* The Laws Explained -- an overview of the regulations directly impacting employers
* The Grandfather Decision Tool -- a series of yes-no questions and calculations to determine if the employer can keep its current health plan without adopting some reform requirements
* Small Business Tax Credit Calculator -- a tool designed to help employers with fewer than 25 full-time employees determine if they are eligible for tax credits allowed by the law.
"There are a number of challenges that business owners face in today's economy. Understanding health reform shouldn't be one of them," said Kimberly K. Horn, president and CEO of Priority Health. "Our new site answers the questions that are top of mind for employers, namely 'what do I need to do and by when?' Priority Health has the expertise to be employers' trusted source for health reform updates."
The Patient Protection and Affordability Act was passed in March. Decisions are being made every day on how the law will be implemented. UnderstandingHealthReform.com will be updated to reflect regulatory changes and decisions as they become available.
Priority Health provides coverage for 600,000 people with a broad portfolio of products, including self-funded, HMO, PPO, individual and Medicare plans. The company continues to be rated as one of America's Best Health Plans by U.S. News & World Report and the National Committee for Quality Assurance.
