THE IMPACT OF THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT ON PRIVATE EXCHANGES AND DEFINED CONTRIBUTION HEALTH PLANS: PRIVATE EXCHANGE COMPLIANCE ISSUES AND OPPORTUNITIES

Ashley Gillihan, Esq., ALSTON & BIRD, LLP

Many employers are looking to private exchanges as a way transferring the compliance and administration issues associated with the ACA to the insurance carrier. 

But does it really do that?

  • Can employers fix their contributions through a defined contribution arrangement?
  • Can employers ensure compliance with the pay or play rules through a private exchange?
  • What are the legal benefits of a private exchange over traditional arrangements?
  • Can private exchanges be arranged with coverage through the individual market?
  • What are the traps and pitfalls of private exchanges, if any?
