Today, Zane Benefits, the #1 Online Health Benefits Solution, published a new overview of what CPA's need to know about health care reform.
According to Zane Benefits' website, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires CPAs, Tax Advisors, and Accountants to be experts on the key provisions of health care reform. As a result, CPA's are becoming one of the "go-to" professionals for health insurance decisions.
Zane Benefits' website says that for example, because the ACA introduces new tax penalties and credits/subsidies, CPAs are required to help clients consider whether it is more valuable to go to a state Health Insurance Exchange or a private insurer based on how many FTEs they have.

Report says at least 40 patients died while waiting for appointments at Phoenix VA medical center that was hiding information.
WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Department of Veterans Affairs medical center in Phoenix has been keeping a secret list of patients with long-delayed appointments, a practice which has been linked to the deaths of at least 40 veterans, according to an April 23 report by CNN.
The secret list kept by the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care System was part of a cover-up created by VA managers to hide the fact that more than 1,400 veterans were forced to wait many months to see a doctor, according to CNN’s interview with a retired VA doctor, Sam Foote, who worked at the facility for 24 years.
American Legion National Commander Daniel M. Dellinger said if the allegations are true, the secret list in Phoenix “is one of the most abhorrent acts ever committed in VA history.”
The American Legion is meeting with top VA Central Office officials in Washington today to discuss the issue and the department’s response to it.
Dellinger is sending a team of American Legion experts to Phoenix next month to give local veterans a chance to discuss the quality of their VA health care. The team, part of the Legion’s System Worth Saving Task Force, will also conduct a two-day site visit to the Phoenix medical center where they will interview administrators, medical staff and patients.
Dr. Foote told CNN that the Phoenix hospital also maintains a “sham” list that it shares with VA’s Central Office in Washington, which falsely indicates Phoenix has been providing timely appointments for its patients.
“If this is all true, it is a new low in a string of breakdowns at VA medical centers – Columbia, S.C.; Augusta, Ga.; Jackson, Miss.; the list goes on – that have caused the needless deaths of individuals who served this country with honor,” Dellinger said.
“We’re going to find out what happened in Phoenix,” he added. “We are going to find out who was responsible for this secret list and if they are still working for VA. These preventable deaths keep mounting, and yet we see not a single VA manager being held accountable. The American Legion will work with Congress and the VA Central Office to find out exactly what has been happening, and why. It is not sufficient for VA to simply say it’s going to try to do better next time, without holding people accountable.”
The CNN report only fuels criticism about the department’s reputation for a lack of accountability among senior leadership, Dellinger said. “Preventable deaths, construction delays, cost overruns, gaming the system, over-medicating our veterans – where does it all end? This issue must be addressed at every level.”

WASHINGTON, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Data from a new government report show that if all the structurally deficient bridges in the United States were placed end-to-end, it would take you 25 hours driving 60 miles per hour to cross them. That's like driving the 1,500 miles between Boston and Miami. And it's a problem that's close to home.
An analysis of the 2013 National Bridge Inventory database released this month by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) shows cars, trucks and school buses cross Kansas's 2,554 structurally compromised bridges 875,202 times every day.
The problem could get a lot worse, the chief economist for the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) says, as states across the nation face a slowdown in reimbursements for already approved federal-aid highway projects in August. Without congressional action, Dr. Alison Premo Black says there will be no Highway Trust Fund support for any new road, bridge, or public transportation projects in any state during FY 2015, which begins October 1.
"Letting the Highway Trust Fund investment dry up would have a devastating impact on bridge repairs," Black says, noting the trust fund supports an average $95.0 million annually in Kansas bridge work. "It would set back bridge improvements for years."
"The bridge problem sits squarely on the backs of our elected officials," Black says. "The state transportation department can't just wave a magic wand and make the problem go away. It takes committed investment by our legislators. Members of Congress need to come to grips with that. Some of our most heavily travelled bridges were built in the 1930s. Most are more than 40 years old."
Bridge decks and support structures are regularly inspected by the state transportation departments for deterioration and are rated on a scale of zero to nine—nine being "excellent" condition. A bridge is classified as structurally deficient and in need of repair if its overall rating is four or below.
While these bridges may not be imminently unsafe, ARTBA suggests they be sign posted so the public knows they have structural deficiencies that need repair.
The ARTBA analysis of the bridge data supplied by the states to the USDOT found:
- Kansas ranks 7th nationally in its number of structurally deficient bridges—2,554.
- Kansas ranks 25th in the percentage of its bridges that are classified as structurally deficient—10.0%.
A list of the 10 structurally deficient bridges in Kansas that carry the most traffic daily is available in the "Economics" section of www.artba.org.
Established in 1902, ARTBA is the "consensus voice" of the U.S. transportation design and construction industry in the Nation's Capital.
