November 05, 2019 | Webinar: Strategies To Reduce Healthcare Costs Ahead Of Open Enrollment And The New CA Individual Mandate (Online)

California’s new Individual Healthcare Mandate requires every person to get health insurance starting January 1, 2020. Join us for this webinar to understand your employer responsibilities and how this mandate may impact your costs. PwC’s Health Research Institute (HRI) projects the growth of medical costs in the employer insurance market for the coming 2020 calendar year to increase by 6 percent – that is even without the new individual mandate. To optimize coverage options, California hospitality professionals should look for competitive group health plans ahead of their coming year to ensure they’re meeting the requirements. The California Restaurant Association wants to educate the industry and help members save money on employee health care costs.
