This Webinar Covered:

On Wednesday, January 20th from 1-2:30 pm EST, the TSGAC hosted a Webinar to review findings from an analysis of Employer Options under the Affordable Care Act for a mid-sized, Self-governance Tribe (case study #8).  Issues addressed included:

  • What are the “pay” or “play” options;
  • What options are not practical for many Tribes;
  • How does the Federal Employer Health Benefits (FEHB) program option fit in; and,
  • What is the net cost to a Tribe from the employer mandate?

The presentation incorporated an analysis of Sponsorship options for the Tribe. This analysis is one in a series of analyses being conducted with a select number of Tribes to assist in determining preferred options for meeting the ACA’s employer requirements, as well as consider whether Sponsorship of Tribal members through a Health Insurance Marketplace is beneficial for the Tribe.  These analyses are being shared to help inform the decision-making process of other Tribes.
