Webinar: Understanding How the PPACA Will Affect Volunteer Fire Departments
On this short, 30-minute webinar, we will cover the recent developments regarding the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act in relation to volunteer fire departments.
The IAFC had raised concerns about how this requirement would affect fire departments that rely upon volunteers to protect their communities, who frequently volunteer more than 30 hours a week. The association's efforts included educating both members of Congress and the Administration.
The result came in a January 10 announcement by the Treasury Department, clarifying that fire departments will not have to provide health insurance to volunteer firefighters.
