Healthcare Compliance Inc. ® came to be, in 2010, as a direct result of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). Now it is simply referred to as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and, of course, by the more politically charged term, Obamacare.
When reliable information on the ACA was difficult to find, our founder, Janet Mlynar, decided to read the law. Originally 2,407 pages, it has expanded, in the last 5 years to nearly 50,000 pages. In early 2012, the company was incorporated under the name Healthcare Compliance Inc. The name was chosen specifically to address the major components of the ACA: healthcare and compliance.
JANET MLYNAR – MBA, CFP®
Referred to as a thought leader on the Affordable Care Act, Janet Mlynar, MBA, CFP®, has applied 34 years of experience, education and training to the comprehension and communication of the very lengthy and complex piece of legislation known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Based on her extensive research of the ACA, combined with a professional career spent in the insurance industry and securities industry, Janet is uniquely qualified as an ACA expert. She is a dynamic speaker, able to hold the attention of an audience, even on a subject as technically challenging as health care.
Janet’s years of experience as a business owner, working in the fields of health insurance and financial planning, have yielded some interesting opportunities. Understanding the ACA from the perspective of a business owner qualifies her, when called upon to assist other business owners, navigate a complex law that now regulates every aspect of group health insurance. The ACA, specifically tied group health plans to ERISA requiring employers to manage group health much like they manage their 401(k) Plan. Janet’s commitment to educating employers will continue as changes are made to the ACA.
