TEAM Software is forging ahead with plans to help customers comply with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on June 28, 2012, to uphold the healthcare reform law’s individual coverage mandate and leave all other parts of the PPACA intact. While this decision removes a major obstacle plaguing the PPACA, its provisions still face significant challenges and possible repeal.

Regardless of the uncertainty, TEAM Software has been working on solutions and will continue efforts to ensure clients comply with the reforms that are already in effect and with those that will take effect in the coming months and years.

Juliana Reno, partner with Kutak Rock national law firm and healthcare reform expert, will be speaking at TEAM’s annual client conference, scheduled August 27-30 in Omaha, NE. Ms. Reno will share her insight with attendees in the executive track on what changes to expect in the security and building service industries due to the PPACA.

“TEAM Software understands the need for our clients to comply with PPACA,” said Laura Coenen, Sr. Vice President of Operations at TEAM. “We are committed to developing solutions to help our clients as they make the decision to ‘pay or play.’ We also are keeping abreast of the ongoing changes and will work with our healthcare advisors to meet the demands of our clients.”

TEAM’s additional plans include:
• Completing WinTeam updates to satisfy W2 reporting requirements for 2012
• Adding resources including specialized legal counsel
• Proactively developing tools to monitor, report and manage your full-time and part-time workforce to assist with FTE determinations and “look-back” periods
