Understand landmark health care reform legislation and keep up with regulatory developments as they unfold

NEW YORK, Aug. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters recently released Health

Care Reform content onto its industry-leading online platform, Checkpoint, which is now relied upon by over a half million professionals. The latest EBIA manual and PPC guide are comprehensive, authoritative, and frequently updated to help business and individual plan administrators and advisors avoid possible risks of non-compliance with health care reform. The new Health Care Reform content includes two new titles:

  • Employee Benefits Institute of America (EBIA) manual Health Care Reform for Employers and Advisors helps employers and their benefit advisors understand and comply with the new U.S. healthcare reform legislation as it impacts their benefit plans. The book provides in-depth analysis and guidance on how this important legislation affects health plans, including grandfathered health plan rules, required plan administration and design changes (including PCEs, limits, adult child coverage, preventive services, and claims appeals), tax incentives, exchanges, vouchers, and early retiree reinsurance. It includes roadmaps, charts, tables, timelines of the various implementation dates, checklists, and sample documents to facilitate compliance.
  • PPC's Guide to Health Care Reform for CPAs, benefit plan advisors, and employers provides easy to understand guidance on the key provisions of the health care reform legislation. Topics include: health care insurance mandates for individuals and employers; fees, taxes and penalties for noncompliance; new notice and reporting requirements; health plan coverage changes, and revisions to the rules on cafeteria plans, FSAs, HSAs, and MSAs. Other important features of the Guide include: real-life examples, worksheets, quick reference charts of the various implementation dates, and client letters.

"After the health care reform legislation passed in Congress, much of the law's interpretation, clarification, and administration is being left to the IRS, DOL, HHS, and other agencies," said Steve Mendelsohn, senior vice president and general manager of Online Media at Tax & Accounting. "This means that plan providers will need a resource that is reliably current as new regulations and interpretations are issued. Our manual and guide help reduce the risk of potential lawsuits resulting from non-compliance, excise tax penalties, and agency enforcement activities."

As the industry's leading research platform, Checkpoint is relied upon by 100 of the top 100 U.S. CPA firms, 95 of the top 100 U.S. law firms, and 93 of the Fortune 100 Corporations. Professionals in benefits administration, tax, accounting and legal fields rely on its authoritative up-to-date information, analysis and guidance to comply with current legislation, regulations, and financial standards.
