Most employee benefit plans are in or heading into open enrollment time. Insurers are rolling out new offerings, employers are shopping for better deals, and employees are puzzling over what it all means. What parts of the Affordable Care Act are in effect? Are waivers still available? Are you ready for new W-2 reporting requirements? What are the effects of the health insurance reforms of the last legislative session in Maine? Are there new opportunities to lower costs through wellness programs?
Join us on November 10th for our annual benefits update as Charlie Einsiedler and Joanne Pearson help you understand some of the challenges employers face with their health plans as a result of the latest federal and state reforms. We will provide an overview of key changes, then get down into the weeds on some of the new burdens facing employers.
The program will take place in our 5th Floor Conference Center. The program will begin at 8:00 a.m. and go to about 9:15. Merrill's Wharf is located at 254 Commercial Street. There are 10 visitor parking spaces on Merrill's Wharf next to our new building, available on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional complimentary parking is available at Fisherman's Wharf for the duration of our breakfast programs. Fisherman's Wharf is located on Chandler's Road off Commercial Street, just west of the Portland Lobster Company. Please drive up to the booth and tell the attendant that you are parking for the Pierce Atwood Employment Program. You will receive a ticket to display in your window. Our office is just a short walk west on Commercial Street.
