Healthcare Reform Year in Review

This site was developed to be a fact finder and truth teller about one of the largest laws passed in United States history.  Right now, the Affordable Care Act is still being fine-tuned by the executive branch making it a moving target.  Many rules were written over the course of 2012 but only recently were they released.

Additional regulations will be coming in the future and expect a volatile 2013 as small businesses all over the country struggle to disseminate said regulations.

Fortunately for you, E.D. Bellis has your back.

A Looming Storm

This week I had to opportunity to visit Seward, Nebraska which is a wonderful community outside of Lincoln.

It was nice and it is always fun to interact with the public about a subject I have become so passionate about over the last few years –  informing businesses and individuals how much the Affordable Care Act will impact them.

The Hidden Tax on Businesses

Compliance with new laws like the ACA will challenge business.

ACA Compliance Tips

Lost in the politics of the Affordable Care Act are several sections of the law experts from both political persuasion believe will have serious economic impact.

ACA compliance tips

What many often do not realize is the amount of compliance the health reform law created.  Examples include new insurance rules created in section 1302 (B) and the requirement in section 1513 every business with more than 50 full-time employees must provide affordable health coverage meeting government defined essential health benefits.  This will create a niche of vulnerable businesses facing serious compliance challenges right now.
