The Vineyard Health Care Access Program is sponsoring a workshop for local employers about rules regarding health insurance enacted as part of the state’s health care reform program.

The workshop is set for Thursday, April 10 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School in the library conference room.

Paul Wingle of the Massachusetts Health Insurance Connector Authority, the state agency that oversees the new health care programs, is scheduled to speak. Mr. Wingle will address and explain some of the new regulations for employers including minimum creditable coverage, the fair share assessment and the free rider surcharge.
