BAB to Host Forum for SME’s on Healthcare Reform Updates
DDC’s resident healthcare and insurance expert, John Eisele, is set to join Mark Luppi of HSBC North America and Steven Friedman of Littler Mendelson for the BritishAmerican Business’ SME networking forum on recent updates and impacts of the Affordable Care Act.
ATLANTA, GA, August 26, 2014 — The DDC Group, a world-leading provider of business process outsourcing (BPO) solutions, announced today that John Eisele, VP of Business Development, will be a featured guest for the BritishAmerican Business (BAB) Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) Forum on Wednesday, September 17, 2014, from 8:00 – 9:30 a.m. at Littler Mendelson; 900 Third Ave., New York, NY.
The program, “Making Healthcare Reform Work for Your Company,” is part of the BAB New York SME Forum series, which is designed to assist small and mid-sized member companies looking to learn and share best practices about topical challenges facing SMEs involved in transatlantic business. DDC’s resident thought leader on healthcare and insurance, John Eisele, will ignite peer-to-peer dialogue with his insight covering the new healthcare legislation, recent developments in its rollout, and the impact it will have on employers for years to come.
The panel discussion will be moderated by Mark Luppi, Executive Vice President and Head of Business Banking for HSBC North America, and will feature guest speaker Steven J. Friedman, Co-Chair of the Employee Benefits Practice Group of the largest US-based law practice Littler Mendelson. Topics of coverage include key features of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA); how costs will affect business, issues surrounding the employer penalty mandate, as well as the potential effects of certain ACA provisions including the tax credit and insurance exchanges.
“This forum will allow attending SMEs to familiarize themselves with these complex and expensive regulations, as well as the subsequent modifications to the law that affect them individually; this is imperative, as there is no one, generic course of action that will work for all employers,” Eisele explains.
Eisele credits BAB for taking the initiative to raise awareness about ACA provisions for SMEs: "As a key partner for transatlantic business leaders, BAB has proved its dedication to providing excellent resources and up-to-date advice to its members time and time again."
"DDC is delighted for the opportunity to collaborate with BAB for this high-caliber program and contribute to long-term growth of their members," Eisele continues. "We look forward to compelling discussion but, most importantly, answering questions providing clarity on the ACA to attendees."
