SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., June 17, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- EPIC, a retail property, casualty and employee benefits insurance brokerage and consultancy, announced today their release of the second in a series of Healthcare Engagement Videos, "Understanding Healthcare Reform." The video provides a clear overview of the Affordable Care Act, simplifying its many elements into a straightforward, easily understood review.

"Understanding Healthcare Reform" will help employers educate employees about their role in the changing landscape of employee benefits. It also addresses key issues related to the Affordable Care Act and healthcare reform. The video can be viewed at .

In addition to this video series, EPIC continues to actively develop and add resources to simplify employer transition to the new healthcare system. EPIC's benefits consulting division is equipping employers to manage communications, compliance, plan design, and the costs of healthcare reform.

"For most, the Affordable Care Act is daunting. It is the largest change to our healthcare system since Medicare. EPIC recognized employers needed help to effectively understand and communicate about reform," said Dana Liedel, EPIC Principal and Senior Benefits Consultant who developed the project. "This led to the creation of our healthcare engagement video series which has become a key resource for employers and delivers on EPIC's promise to lead and innovate."

This second EPIC healthcare video addresses topics such as:

* Personal responsibility, federal subsidies, and regulations
* The three sources for healthcare plans
* Qualifying for benefits in the workplace
* The Healthcare Insurance Marketplace and options it provides
* Prevention and wellness initiatives in new care plans.

Two additional videos make up this series. "Benefits Consumerism" is currently offered and "Wellness Behaviors" is in production and will soon be available.
