    Health Care Reform – A Strategic Perspective

    As we approach 2015, new guidance and clarifications are being issued by the government in furious fashion. The delay in application of the employer shared responsibility provision (the "Play or Pay Mandate") has provided employers the time to develop a benefits and staffing strategy to balance the compliance obligations of the ACA along with operational needs. This presentation will focus on the practical aspects of planning for healthcare reform: recognizing significant compliance obligations, identifying cost implications and understanding how offering benefits in the future will impact staffing and other key HR decisions.

    Mardi Burns is a SVP and Senior Benefits Consultant at Associated Financial Group. She has over 30 years of experience in employee benefits and specializes in multi-sited self-funded plans, strategic benefit planning facilitation, public employer plans and integrating the benefit strategy with engagement and wellness strategies. Mardi has an M.B.A. from the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh School of Business and is a Certified Health Consultant (CHC).

    While we anticipate having a buffet lunch, a plated meal may be substituted if the Holiday Inn does not have any other buffet luncheons that day. If you have any special dietary needs, please discuss them with your server on the day of the meeting and they will be happy to accommodate your request.
