BancorpSouth Insurance Services, Inc. Announces Addition Of Health Care Reform Impact Analysis Calculator To Suite Of Products And Services

GULFPORT, Miss., Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BancorpSouth Insurance Services, Inc., a subsidiary of BancorpSouth Bank, headquartered in Tupelo, Mississippi, announced today the release of a health care reform calculator to help clients and partners quantify the financial impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) on their health plans.

With this powerful new tool, BancorpSouth Insurance Services consultants will be able to provide financial modeling and project medical plan cost through 2018. This tool, originally developed by California-based insurance broker, Barney & Barney LLC, will also allow users to predict the financial impact of various scenarios, such as whether the employer continues offering health care coverage, modifies or increases coverage or drops coverage altogether.

The calculator takes into account mandates, penalties, taxes and other considerations in the legislation that can prove costly for employers. The tool also has expansive capabilities around the pay-or-play provision, helping employers understand their exposure to employee eligibility issues related to state exchanges.

"We are very excited about offering this valuable tool to our clients and partners," said Markham McKnight, BancorpSouth Insurance Services President. "The calculator allows our consultants to help clients evaluate different scenarios to gage the financial impact of the pay-or-play provisions of PPACA. We realize that employers need to start preparing now to comply with the mandates. This tool will let them know in advance what changes will be needed to ensure their plan is compliant and financially viable, as well as attractive to their employees," McKnight added.

To learn more about the calculator, please contact BancorpSouth Insurance Services at healthcarereform@bxsi.com or visit www.bxsi.com.
