Thomas Jefferson said it best: “Never put off tomorrow what you can do today.” And when it comes to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, this lesson couldn’t ring more true. It’s easy to keep pushing compliance off to a more convenient time, but there are requirements that take effect later this year which demand preparation. The recent PPACA delays, while helpful in some ways, have erroneously caused many to think they can take a sigh of relief for a year.
But oftentimes the reasons for procrastination have to do with not knowing where to start. PPACA requirements are also affected by employer size, which adds further confusion.
