    Employee Benefits:
    A Minefield of Acronyms & What It Means to be a Fiduciary

    Speaker: Ross Carmichael

    There are many hazards in today’s employee benefit compliance landscape. For employers, navigating the ACA, ERISA, COBRA, HIPAA, FMLA, ADA, etc. can be daunting. Attendees will learn more about these topics and more from Ross, who will help you understand employee benefits & the important role of fiduciaries, and share insights regarding next steps after tax reform.

    Luncheon Meeting
    11:30 am - 1:00 pm

    ACA 2018 Update- Including How to Avoid receiving an IRS Penalty Notice

    Speaker: Jennifer Reed

    For years, Jennifer Reed has presented on ACA reporting, teaching insurance brokers and HR professionals all over the country.  She will give us a fresh update on what is happening with ACA including how to avoid receiving a dreaded Penalty Assessment Letter (Letter 22J) from the IRS.  Healthcare was not only transformed by ACA, but it is ever changing during the “repeal” process of the current administration.  Unfortunately, the risk of receiving a Penalty Assessment Letter from the IRS is high (compared to a DOL audit), even for employers that are fully compliant with the current Employer Mandate.  With penalties ranging from a few thousand to multiple millions and the short turn-around time for an appeal, HR professionals need to be aware of how to avoid receiving these notices. 

    Speaker Bio: 

    Jennifer Reed has 10-plus years of experience in Employee Benefits and HR Technology consulting.  Because of her unique background, she is known as a key presenter on ACA reporting.  She was also a primary contributor to the research and development of the ACA reporting services for a national human capital management software company.  Jennifer leads the Benefit Compliance and HR Technology Consulting at GUS BATES Insurance and Investments.
