ACA Operational Flowchart
Your Guide to Compliance in a Few Easy Steps
The text of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on the Healthcare.gov website is 906 pages, about two reams of copy paper. The Computational Legal StudiesTM website (http://bit.ly/1oRBKgQ) posts a version that comes in more than twice as long, at 1990 pages. The official, certified version on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) website is 2,409 pages. According to CNSNews.com, the 109 final regulations account for a combined 10,535 pages in the Federal Register. Ugh.
Okay, so the size of the various versions depends on type size and margins, but the ACA is still big and confusing, as PEOs have seen over the last four years of learning to comply with the law and its regulations. PEOs have always dealt with complicated and confusing things for their small business clients, and the ACA is no different.
