Dublin, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/05/2017 -- Rea & Associates, a CPA and business consultancy firm in Dublin, has recorded and released a podcast in which an employee familiar with the topic discusses some financial implications of the recent debate over the future of the national healthcare system. Rea's podcast is the latest installment in their series unsuitable that touches on financial services and business advice and is available to listen to on the "Rea Radio" section of the firm's website.
The recent episode, featuring a Rea & Associates senior manager who specializes in issues related to the Affordable Care Act—Joe Popp, JD, LLM, was recorded just prior to proposed new healthcare legislation failing to make it to a vote on Friday, March 24th. Though the bill was ultimately pulled from the House floor, there are still many questions surrounding the nation's healthcare policy; the podcast addresses many financial concerns that people have about the future of healthcare policy and how it may affect them as individuals and their businesses.
One of the specific topics addressed in the podcast is the best time to make decisions about existing health care structures. Other topics include healthcare options that are currently provided to business owners, such as the health reimbursement rule passed last September, a topic that is still especially relevant as the Affordable Care Act remains the law. The benefits to individuals of signing up for healthcare sooner rather than later, especially for those with pre-existing conditions, are also covered in the podcast episode.
Rea's resident healthcare expert also discusses an aspect of current healthcare policy that is particularly relevant for small businesses, Health Reimbursement Accounts. Popp notes, "It is for companies that are under 50 full time, full time equivalent employees. It allows you to provide up o $5,000 of reimbursement to your staff and you can do that without providing a health insurance plan. You can do that as a stand alone."
