Post Election Impact on PPACA


Friday, November 16, 2012Friends,

As election season has finally come to a close and the outcomes are known, we anticipate renewed and enhanced activity regarding the Affordable Care Act. WGA will continue to be your partner for all Affordable Care Act provisions that pertain to you and your employees. We are committed to helping you fully understand the impact this law will have on your business and will continue to bring you solutions to manage the changes.

We fully expect the federal departments, Health & Human Services, Labor and Treasury, to issue guidance and regulation almost immediately and continuously over the next 14 months in preparation for 2014. As guidance is issued, we remain committed to delivering the most reliable, comprehensive and straightforward advice possible to support you in making strategic business decisions. We understand you may be experiencing ‘information overload’ with analysis and commentary coming from all directions regarding health care reform. WGA’s Health Reform Advisory Team is diligently covering all the bases to filter out misinformation and to provide you with the most relevant, timely and accurate information available.

Please note that each communication we send has been deemed an important piece of information worthy of your attention. As always, our goal is to be the most reliable source of information, not necessarily the first with an “alert”. As always, all of our materials will be housed, unlocked on our website at

In addition to our Legislative Updates and Commentary, WGA will continue our live seminars and online webinars throughout 2013. Expect a live client workshop series, The Affordable Care Act- What You Need to Know to Survive, to begin in early 2013.

We thank you for your continued trust. Please contact any of your WGA team members with questions.
