DOB Seminar Focuses on Health Care Oct. 9

When the Supreme Court ruled the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act legal, it cemented the fact that changes will arrive for health issues throughout the business world in 2013.

On Oct. 9, Doral Business Council’s breakfast will focus on changes and possible strategies for businesses of all sizes, according to Peter Jude, Director of Marketing & Community Relations for Kendall Regional Medical Center who also chairs the committee focused on educating and promoting best practices to Council members in Doral.

He urges that all DBC members mark their calendar to reserve a place for the breakfast from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. at Doral Golf Resort and Spa, 4400 N.W. 87 Avenue.

During the breakfast, panelists will discuss developing strategies for 2013 and 2014, providing a behind-the-scenes look at the knowledge, experience and health care reform changes in areas like employee benefits, as understood by human resource professionals, an employee benefits consultant and practicing physicians.

Most Americans think of 2014 as the key year when new health care regulations will affect individual taxes. What most news reports overlook is the amount of regulatory items businesses will face for compliance with health care reform and the necessity to begin planning now. Questions echoing across all industries:

What are the options for a company not offering benefits?

Why look into this now; won’t the election change the landscape?

What should human resource professionals tell employees?

How are physicians preparing for Health Care Reform?

The panel discussion is planned to provide new viewpoints, possible options and clarity for business owners and individuals to gain a perspective on the level of regulation.

The panel is intended to offer complex subjects in simplified language that can apply to every size company to prepare for change, as part of a projected business model or annualized budget proposal.

In the immortal words of the Greek philosopher Heraclitus, “The Only Thing that is Constant is Change.”
