ACA Compliance

The health care landscape is changing every day. The US Congress is currently working on a replacement for the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare). The new legislation currently called American Health Care Act of 2017 is working its way through Congress. Until new legislature is passed, the ACA (Affordable Care Act/Obamacare) remains in effect.

The following Compliance Guide will help you navigate the current laws and restrictions and ensure that you are following the laws as they exist today.

You my wish to download a copy of the guide from our Resources page. Please contact us if you have any questions or comments. Our programs and consulting services will continue to keep your organization in line with the law and all its nuances.
