You’ll also learn about:

  • A Continuing Resolution that delays or suspends several Affordable Care Act taxes that directly affect employer-sponsored plans,
  • The New Tax law that overhauls the Internal Revenue Code,
  • The timeline for the removal of Social Security numbers from Medicare ID cards, and
  • Updates to Sibson’s ACA Dollar Amounts and Percentages Chart.
