Flex Shows Employers and Producers How to Make Healthcare Reform Work for Them

ACA Implications Contribute to Growing Interest in Defined Contribution Health Care Plans

ROSEMONT, Ill., Jan. 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Flexible Benefit Service Corporation (Flex), a leading provider of tax-advantaged and consumer-driven health plans (CDHPs), today announced they are educating business and insurance professionals through a series of online events on key healthcare reform implications that will be carried out during the next year.

Several new compliance measures will be required from employers as a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), including pay or play and essential health benefits. In particular, the industry's largest health insurance open enrollment period will begin in late 2013 with the individual mandate that requires all Americans to have health insurance.

According to John DiVito, President of Flex, "The ACA will change the face of healthcare, and now is the time to prepare and determine how the various reform measures will be integrated into our business strategies.

Flex identifies defined contribution health benefits as an employer resource that has gained popularity as a result of new ACA requirements. Defined contribution health plans allow employers to set their own budget and assist employees with health care expenses.

Defined contribution is the primary employer funding model for the private exchange marketplace. Flex manages and administers defined contribution health benefits in support of the InsureXSolutions private insurance exchange, which integrates an online marketplace with direct access to individual health, Medicare, short-term and vision plans from leading insurance companies.

"Every employer should take a hard look at defined contribution as a viable health care strategy," says DiVito.
