ACA and the Election: What HR Needs To Know

By Andie Burjek

Nov. 3, 2016


One of the major issues this election is health care, specifically the ACA. Republican candidate Donald Trump and Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton have very different ideas of what to do with the ACA. Trump wants to repeal it; Clinton wants to keep it but improve on what’s not working. The future of the ACA is uncertain, and the present is complex.

Workforce spoke with ACA expert Kismet Toksu, president of eBenefits, about the current challenges of the ACA. How can HR practitioners manage these challenges, for themselves and for the employees who depend on the ACA for health care coverage?


Workforce: How can an HR manager handle the ACA at a time when they have so many other obligations?

Workforce: What is the impact on employees themselves?

Workforce: How can employers educate employees?

Workforce: How does eBenefits educate its employees?
