EVENT CANCELED DUE TO WEATHER: Enrollment Assister Summit – ACA Tax Provisions
February 26, 2015 @ 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
DUE TO WEATHER CONDITIONS THIS SUMMIT HAS BEEN CANCELED. A RESCHEDULE DATE WILL BE SET AND ATTENDEES NOTIFIED.
“What’s this new line on my tax forms about health coverage in 2014?”
“What if one of my family members qualified for an exemption from the requirement to have coverage?”
“What if I didn’t carry coverage for just a few months in 2014?”
By now, most CACs, Navigators, or IPAs have dealt with some questions similar to these. While lots of great resources exist from the IRS and from Healthcare.gov, it may be hard to navigate this process for a consumer with a complex situation…and we want to equip you to do just that!
Join us on February 26, 2015 for this Enrollment Assister Summit on the tax provisions of the ACA, as well as some training on SHOP, a tutorial on using the Get Covered Connector, and a strategy session on outreach.
Here’s how our day together will proceed:
9:30-10am: Registration, coffee, and networking
10am: ACA Tax Provisions – What Assisters Need to Know
12pm: Lunch (provided)
1pm: Let’s talk SHOP!
2pm: Using the Get Covered Connector as an outreach tool
3pm: Strategy Session – What Worked Best for Outreach
We anticipate that our official time together will wrap up no later than 4pm.
The Virginia Community Healthcare Association is pleased to welcome Tara Straw from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities for a health assister’s “Boot Camp” to help you prepare to assist consumers in the upcoming tax season. You’ll probably recognize Tara’s voice from several of the Health Reform: Beyond the Basics webinars. Tara is a Senior Policy Analyst in the Health Policy Department of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. In this role, she works on issues related to implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
Before joining the Center, she was the Legislative and Policy Director for Health Care for America Now, where she led a broad coalition of advocates that worked on passage and implementation of the health care law. She was also the federal affairs manager for a physician specialty organization, worked on federal and state Medicaid issues at the March of Dimes, and served as a policy analyst at the National Conference of State Legislatures.
Straw received her Master’s in public policy from American University, where she also received her undergraduate degree. She is currently pursuing a law degree at Georgetown University Law Center.
We realize that due to travel restrictions, not all CACs or navigators will be able to attend this event live. We will record the event, and it will be available in the future for those unable to attend in person on February 26.
