October 2019 Reno Chapter Meeting


Reno Chapter of the Nevada Society of CPA's Proudly Presents:

Topic: Modern Post-ACA Employee Benefits World

Learn about some of the different, challenging and most critical calculations in the modern post-ACA employee benefits world. We will identify and discuss concepts, and explain the logic behind some of the most important employee health benefits calculations an accountant working with employers should know. We will discuss employer size calculations for COBRA, Medicare primary/secondary payer status, and ACA Applicable Large Employer (ALE status). From there, we'll dive deeper into ACA by looking at calculations for Full Time Equivalents (FTEs), employee affordability, ACA reporting figures, Medical Loss Ratio payouts, and more.
