Introducing the Regence Health Care and Reform Website

Navigating the major health care system changes that the Affordable Care Act is bringing about can be difficult.
But a new, easy-to-navigate, audience-centric Regence® website is now available to help guide the way.
The Regence Health Care and Reform site, www.healthcareandreform.com, delivers critical, relevant and easy-to-consume information on the current health care landscape, how it is changing and how reform will impact
four audiences: Producers, Small Employers, Large Employers, and Individuals and Families.

The dynamic, constantly evolving content includes tools to direct audiences through critical decision-making processes, including:
• Compliance checklists for both small and large employers
• Requirements for fully insured versus self-insured employers
• Full-time equivalent (FTE) calculators for businesses to determine the size of their workforce
• Penalty flowcharts
• Subsidy calculators
• Timelines
Users can access the latest facts and figures, federal- and state-specific content, and news feeds from leading content sources (by audience and by state). The site also provides tips on what individuals, families and
businesses can do on their own to help control health care costs. Additional reform information can also be found on the site through the following resources: Washington’s Health Benefit Exchange, Office of the Insurance
Commissioner, OIC Health Care Reform, and Health Care Authority.
