Health Care Reform Explained

hrhappyrhourHow prepared are you for the upcoming changes and challenges presented by Health Care Reform?  Has the enormity of the legislation made it difficult to answer the questions you have about reform?  Well, I have a resource for you.

Listen to the HR Happy Hour podcast.  Last night, Steve Boese and I interviewed friend of the show Jennifer Benz, CEO of Benz Communications; and John Barkett of Extend Health, and one of the original authors and implementers of the legislation that became known as Obamacare. In addition to listening, you can read the show backchannel on Twitter – hashtag #HRHappyHour.

Jen and John answer all the questions about preparing for the changes, understanding what they mean and how best to communicate to employees.  Jen also provided the resources below for ongoing information about how the changes will play out.
