8 Why the ACA – Why it came to be? What: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will ensure that all Americans have access to quality, affordable health care and will create the transformation within the health care system necessary to contain costs. Why: Healthcare crisis: Over 30 to 60 Million American’s don’t have access to Healthcare. Cost: Healthcare costs are skyrocketing, rising 2 -3 x of inflation. Coverage denial: Too many Americans were being denied coverage (pre-existing conditions, etc). Lack of scale: Our current healthcare system is not efficient. How: Business: Any large employer (50+ employees) must offer health insurance or pay a penalty. State Government: State Government is required to set up healthcare exchanges to more efficiently distribute healthcare to it’s constituents. 8 © Copyright 2013 ADP, Inc.

13 What Do Employers Need to Consider Now? Workforce Planning 13 © Copyright 2013 ADP, Inc. Proprietary and Confidential Information. Is the company a “large” employer? How many full-time (30 or more hours of service per week) employees do you have? Do you have any seasonal employees? With the new definition of full-time, who will be newly eligible for healthcare coverage? Will there be an increased cost, based on the newly eligible employees? Will the company continue to offer healthcare coverage, based on those increased costs? What other considerations are there when determining whether to continue offering healthcare coverage? How will employee morale/satisfaction be affected by changes in hours or a decision to not offer healthcare coverage?

14 What Do Employers Need to Consider Now? Workforce Planning 14 © Copyright 2013 ADP, Inc. Proprietary and Confidential Information. Determine number of definite full-time and part-time employees. Determine number of variable hour employees (those on the bubble around 30 hours per week). Determine number of seasonal employees and for how many months they are employed each year (using a “good-faith” determination of “seasonal” based on existing DOL guidance). Run calculations to determine if the coverage is “affordable” - determine whether the cost of self-only coverage is greater than 9.5% of any full-time employee's W-2, box 1 wages.
