More than 250 persons participated in a webinar to discuss the impact of the Affordable Care Act and the Church on May 19. Benefits specialists and attorneys Danny Miller and Allison Gardner spent an hour online explaining how churches might provide health coverage for their employees without incurring costly penalties.
“This was, by far, the largest number of participants in one of our webinars to date,” said Mark Lail, Stewardship Ministries director, co-sponsor of the event with Pensions and Benefits USA.
“This kind of participation highlights the interest that has been stirred about healthcare in the church since enactment of the Affordable Care Act,” said Don Walter, P&B USA director. “Our office has been busy responding to phone calls and emails seeking advice. Danny and Allison did a great job of explaining how churches can comply with the law and avoid penalties.”
