Sage Announces Personalized Health Care Reform Resource, Helping Businesses Understand How New Laws Will Affect Them and Guiding Them to Take Action

WASHINGTON, DC–(Marketwired – Jul 24, 2013) – Sage North America today announced that it will launch Sage Healthcare Advisory Services this fall. This resource will provide comprehensive information about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) to customers and their employees.

A preview of Sage Healthcare Advisory Services is being given to customers and business partners this week at Sage Summit, the company’s annual conference being held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Washington, D.C. Today’s conference agenda includes a Health Care Reform Learning Track featuring subject matter experts, including Henry Aaron of the Brookings Institute and President and CEO of BenefitMall Bernard DiFiore, breaking down health care reform by topic: key provisions and compliance requirements, benefit options, health insurance carriers, and what all of this means for business owners, their employees, and their bottom line.

“PPACA will affect nearly all of our customers and their employees,” said Johnny Laurent, vice president and general manager of Sage Employer Solutions. “While there is a wealth of information available online provided by the U.S. government, healthcare providers and insurance companies, we know our customers don’t have the time to navigate the thousands of pages of legislation on their own. Sage Healthcare Advisory Services will save our customers a lot of time and money by cutting through masses of information to bring them what they need to know, with guidance on how to act.”

Sage Healthcare Advisory Services go beyond the company level with tools allowing employers to provide comprehensive information to their employees. Sage Healthcare Advisory Services will:

1. Explain the PPACA by boiling down all of the information available to the essentials and making it understandable for customers.
2. Personalize the information for individuals and their businesses by translating it to what it really means for them. It includes “My Workforce Analyzer,” which provides in-depth analysis of how the legislation applies to a particular organization, the consequences and the options.
3. Help business owners take action by guiding them along the way to find the right solutions for their business: health plans, private exchanges, HSAs, HRAs, and FSAs.
