To borrow a term from OrgOrg’s founders, organization organizers are involved in a lot. You juggle the needs of diverse groups of people and handle with care all the day-to-day necessities in order to keep them humming and purring like the well-oiled machines they all can be. But machines often come with a lot of moving parts to consider, and such is the way for the ACA.
It shouldn’t come as a terrible surprise that the ACA could be overwhelming. This act houses a true reform of a gigantic industry. To put “gigantic” into concrete terms, the US healthcare system alone, at $3 trillion, accounts for almost 20% of the entire US economy. The ACA delves into all facets of this system, including insurance coverage requirements, regulations for small and large businesses, minimum levels of coverage by insurance carriers, preventive care standards, affordability, Medicaid, and so on.
So what happens, then, when the onus of pouring through ACA details falls to the office managers, the operations teams, the People Officers, each of whom already work at capacity? We are all about to find out as more small to mid-sized businesses become affected by the ACA legislations that kick in at the end of 2015.
Maybe you haven’t had much time to read through the 20,000 some-odd page (and growing) ACA tome in order to figure out what applies to you. Maybe the questions you’ve been asking have only been met with more questions. Maybe you haven’t even had enough time to ask the questions you need to ask in order to make sense of it all.
Well, we are happy to demystify it for you.
