Health-Care Reform for Employers: What’s New, What’s Not, What Now?

Beneflex Insurance Services and the Mullen & Henzell law firm will present a free seminar on July 19

Beneflex Insurance Services Inc. is partnering with local law firm Mullen & Henzell to offer an educational, unbiased free seminar to employers from 8 to 10 a.m. Thursday, July 19 at the Ventura Beach Marriott to prepare employers for health-care reform following the Supreme Court’s ruling in June.

Beneflex and Mullen & Henzell have been preparing for health-care reform legislation since the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was introduced in 2009. Now, these two companies have partnered to bring the business community up to date on health-care reform by providing a free seminar to business owners, executives and human resource professionals.

The seminar’s presenters will be Lesa Caputo, benefit advisor at Beneflex Insurance Services, and Christine Roberts, ERISA attorney and partner at Mullen & Henzell, and are both highly regarded in their respective fields as well as subject matter experts in the employee benefits and health-care reform arenas.

Caputo and Roberts will share their wisdom specifically to provide guidance to employers on how to now move forward with a plan of action not only to ensure their legal compliance with the new mandates under PPACA but also to provide constructive ideas and tools for positioning each company’s benefits to thrive in the future.

This is a highly regarded and anticipated seminar and is being embraced by the local business community.

“Spaces are filling up faster than we can send invitations out,” Caputo said.

A second date was added in Santa Barbara to keep up with demand.

“We are looking to add another similar event to our calendar for the business community in the Camarillo, Thousand Oaks and Westlake areas,” Caputo said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
