KANSAS CITY, Mo., Nov. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Preceding Thursday's complimentary webcast, What Now, After the Election?, experts in Lockton Benefit Group just published long-awaited insight into the impact the new Donald Trump administration could have on US employer-sponsored healthcare. Lockton is the world's largest privately held insurance broker, and has been monitoring the presidential election closely on behalf of its employer-clients.
Now with a Republican majority in the Congress and a Republican president, health plan sponsors will undoubtedly see changes, says today's Alert from Lockton Benefit Group's Compliance Services team. Consistently, Mr. Trump and the Republican Party have opposed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and a repeal of the ACA's employer play-or-pay mandate seems inevitable. Lockton's experts caution, however: prudent employers will continue their compliance with the ACA, including its reporting requirements.
