Brian M. Pinheiro


Mr. Pinheiro will discuss both the immediate impact and longer-term implications of the Affordable Care Act. Employers that provide health benefits to employees will need to continue to take action to comply with the new law in 2013, and should be considering whether it makes sense strategically to continue to offer group health plan coverage to employees in 2014 and beyond.

Immediate issues in 2013 include the preparation and distribution of summaries of benefits and coverage (SBCs), permitted uses of medical loss ratio (MLR) rebates from insurance companies, new administrative fees payable by health plans to the federal government, and new limits for health care flexible spending accounts.
