— Spilman Thomas & Battle, PLLC (Spilman) and Commercial Insurance Services of West Virginia (Commercial Insurance) announced that more than 200 West Virginia business leaders gathered yesterday and today for their co-hosted seminar, Dealing with the ACA: Practical Guidance for Business Leaders. The goal of the seminar was to provide business leaders with recommended steps to prepare for upcoming Affordable Care Act (ACA) requirements.
“The recent delay of the ACA Pay-or-Play mandate
has added complexity to already complicated requirements,” said Eric E. Kinder
