It will detail policy provisions and options, common exclusions, and tax treatments of premiums and benefits. It covers government-sponsored programs, and important state and Federal legislation on health care. You will read interesting and important case studies to bring this topic to life. Finally, we detail the most recent issues that have come up in the real world of group insurance such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) And the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) as they apply to group coverage, and what it requires of employers, the impact of managed care. We will also discuss the issues of how to provide health coverage for those who cannot afford it and those who are currently at high risk or medically uninsurable.
