Webinar: Defined Contribution Health Care for Health Care Providers

Health Care Reform and spiraling increases in health care plan costs may have you looking for alternatives to providing health care benefits to your employees. A new design paradigm is the concept of the defined contribution approach to providing health care coupled with coverage being provided, not through an employer-sponsored plan, but instead through employee access to and choices within public or private health care benefit exchanges. In this webinar, our Employee Benefits experts John McKendry, Jr., and Norbert Kugele will explore this new design. Among other things, we will discuss:
  • The design and an outline of the basic features of a defined contribution health plan approach coupled with public or private exchanges
  • The pros and cons of the defined contribution/exchange approach to providing health care currently and under the 2014 Health Care Reform provisions
  • ERISA and Internal Revenue Code issues associated with this plan design
  • A description of current studies and marketplace developments in connection with defined contribution health care plans and exchanges
  • How this design fits with new Michigan "hard caps" legislation limiting the cost of medical benefits provided by public employers
