Is your company prepared for the employer mandates that become effective in 2016 under the Affordable Care Act (ACA)? If not, you need to act fast in order to avoid IRS penalties. Don’t understand what’s expected? Western Growers can help.

In response to our successful road show events held recently in Modesto and Bakersfield, we have decided to once again take our Affordable Care Act expertise ‘on the road.’ Join us in Imperial, Fresno, Visalia, Salinas or Santa Maria in the coming weeks as we help guide you through the tangled web of ACA regulations you need to know about for next year.  Enjoy a complimentary breakfast or lunch while you hear from ACA expert and Western Growers Assurance Trust (WGAT) general counsel, Jon Alexander, and from the local Western Growers Insurance Services team about important Affordable Care Act updates.

Our team will break down what you need to know about the employer mandates that will affect your business in 2016. We will cover IRS reporting requirements and notable deadlines and also familiarize you with the ACA Dashboard — a Pinnacle Claims Management-developed reporting tool — that can do a lot of the complicated work for you.
