Key points on how reform may impact you

Although numerous legal challenges wait to be resolved, it is clear that sweeping changes will be coming for health care reform in 2014. Some questions regarding these potential changes include:

  • Am I required to have health insurance coverage?
  • What are the consequences for not having coverage?
  • What if I cannot afford coverage?
Additional health care reform measures include changes to:
  • Over-The-Counter Prescription Reimbursements
  • Limited Health Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
  • Extended Dependent Age Coverage
  • W-2 Cost of Coverage Reporting
  • HSA and MSA Penalties
  • Medical Expense Deductions
  • Medicare Taxes
