ACA compliance can be complicated.
We make it simple for you.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) poses some serious strategic issues for employers.
In order for businesses to remain compliant and prevent potential fines, you have to make some big decisions regarding health care benefits for your employees. You also have to implement it all the right way, and keep your communications and information reporting to federal agencies accurate and timely.
We’re here to help you create a compliant plan that’s tailored for an entertainment industry workforce. You’ve got enough on your plate. Let us handle the enrollment, administration, and management of a plan built for you and your team.
To help you navigate through the entire ACA process, we have partnered with Willis Towers Watson (NASDAQ: WLTW)—a leading global advisory, brokering, and solutions firm—to develop an innovative program built upon a cutting edge technology platform with unparalleled capacities. This includes data analytics, IRS reporting and compliance management.
It’s simple, really.
Working with us ensures you’ll have a dedicated team of subject matter experts in your industry.
