    About the PPACA(Otherwise known as Obamacare)Businesses will be measured in 2013 to determine if they will be required to provide healthcare in 2014. Beginning in 2014, employers that employ an average of 50 full-time equivalent employees during the 2013 calendar year must offer health coverage that meets minimum essential coverage requirements or pay a fine.

    Employer Size CalculationCompanies fall into one of two categories: a) Companies with fewer than 50 employees b) Companies with 50 or more employees. This is a big and often confusing issue for employers because part time employees enter into the equation. Ask us about our Complimentary Employer Size Formula and we'll do the calculations for you. This is a benefit available to any of our members. It is also an offer we're extending to ALL businesses for a limited time.

    Strategic Planning for 2014If your business is considered a large employer, you are required to offer coverage to FTEs (full time employees) only. You may offer coverage to everyone if you want. FTE status will depend on expected hours for new hires and a portion of actual work history for existing employees on 12/31/13. The rules for determining who is a full time employee for coverage are different from the counting rules.

    Insurance ExchangesAn employer with fewer than 50 employees can choose not to provide coverage. There is no penalty to the employer. However, all employees of the business are mandated to have coverage. These employees can shop for insurance at an exchange. A health

    insurance exchange is a set of government-regulated and standard-ized health care plans in the United States from which individuals may purchase health insurance eligible for federal subsidies. All exchanges must be fully certified and operational by January 1, 2014 under federal law. Exchanges will be established for each state, either by the state itself or by the federal government.

    To learn more about the rules, penalties and deadlines associated with the PPACA, please contact us. We're finding many employers simply do not have the time to keep up with

    the complex issue of Obamacare, or they do not want to find the time. This is not the reason they got into business, and they would prefer to focus on what they do best and spend time growing their business, not getting bogged down with healthcare. The PPACA will be a burdensome, yet required function of business. Let Avitus Group help with your PPACA transition.

    THEy SAy THERES no business like show business. But for Mike and Brenda Dinsmore, current owners of Bagel Boy, show business is how their dough business got started. And its a successful dough business at that. With two locations, their new one located just south of 33rd and Minnesota, and their E. 26th Street spot, its not hard to see why. Drive by virtually any time of day and the parking lots or drive through on 26th Street are pretty busy with carb-hungry patrons, looking to get their bagel fix. And for that, Mike and Brenda are so grateful. Sioux Falls is such a wonderful community, Brenda says. Were so thankful people pick us.

    While Mike and Brenda are not the original founders of Bagel Boy, which first opened in Sioux Falls in 1994, youd never know it by the way they treat the store itself, its customers and its employees. This business, along with our kids, is our baby. We cherish each day we have here with the customers and the employees. The Dinsmores bought the two original locations in 2000, after they moved to Sioux Falls from Reading, Penn. We

    were ready to move back to South Dakota, says Brenda. And you know what? The timing was just right.
