IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 24, 2014) - Sage North America today launched the Health Benefits Explained Library, the first comprehensive set of resources dedicated to helping HR professionals, business owners and their employees understand the intricacies of healthcare and the PPACA.

The Health Benefits Explained Library, part of Sage Healthcare Advisory Services, provides a subscription to live and on-demand training on topics of interest to both employers and employees, including the various elements of a healthcare plan, terminology related to healthcare legislation and how to navigate compliance through laws that support the new healthcare regulations. The library also features a fully customizable employee information toolkit that provides the resources businesses need to notify employees about changes resulting from the PPACA and healthcare considerations in general.

"The 2013 Aflac WorkForces Report revealed that 75% of respondents will expect and look to their employers to educate them on healthcare reform while only 13% of employers said it was their priority to educate employees on the subject," said Johnny Laurent, vice president and general manager of Sage Employer Solutions. "Most of our customers do not have the time and resources to provide comprehensive benefits and healthcare information to their employees, so we developed the Health Benefits Explained Library to fill this need."
