Our experts are skilled at preparing counsel and providing support to attorneys through document management and preparation of trial exhibits. They use forensic accounting skills, valuation expertise, financial modeling expertise, and litigation support experience to apply to damage calculations. Our experts also have experience testifying and are familiar with the rigor that is required to withstand cross examination.

ACA Compliance

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was enacted to increase the quality and affordability of health insurance and lower the uninsured rate by expanding coverage. The Act itself includes many mandates, subsidies, and insurance exchanges that work toward this goal of increasing affordability and coverage. Provisions in the ACA pose a number of challenges for U.S. businesses and organizations who offer health insurance as an employee benefit. With many different areas now affected by these provisions, the ACA has created a whole new employee healthcare environment.

KT has designated a specialized team of CPAs and accounting professionals to facilitate understanding and guide action when it comes to adapting to changes in the American healthcare system. A thorough understanding of the details behind healthcare reform can help you lower premium costs to your business and increase employee access to care.
