Concerned about the uncertainties of the Affordable Care Act? 


Help is on the way.


On Feb. 12, Danny Miller, who serves as legal counsel for benefits to Brethren Benefit Trust, and also serves in that capacity for many mainline Protestant denominations because of his 40 years of experience working with the IRS and church benefit plans, will be discussing the latest news pertaining to the Affordable Care Act on a free webinar. He will be joined by Allison Gardner, a healthcare attorney, who works with Danny at the Connor and Winters law firm in Washington, D.C.


The webinar, which will begin at 1 p.m. EST, Thursday, Feb. 12, is sponsored by ECFA, a faith-based organization that focuses on best practice issues. The webinar is free for those who register, and an audio recording will be made available for those who can't attend the webinar live.


"There has been so much confusion about the Affordable Care Act and provisions that pertain to congregations," said Nevin Dulabaum, BBT president. "This session will provide some context as to the reason for the changes and what they mean to individual congregations. Danny and Allison will hopefully take questions to clear up any remaining ambiguity that still exists after their presentation."


BBT encourages Church of the Brethren pastors and district executives to sign up for the free webinar. BBT's role as an insurance provider within the denomination and as an official Annual Conference agency is to make sure members know which questions they should be asking of their respective accountants and legal counsel to help navigate through ACA rules and restrictions. This webinar gives Church of the Brethren members the opportunity to hear from the team that serves as BBT's benefits counsel.


Participation is limited, so do not delay in signing up to participate live or to receive an audio recording after the fact. Go to https://www.ecfa.org/Events.aspx for more information.
