A business guide to surviving the Affordable Care Act
Capital BlueCross | 09.17.13
The idea of health care reform, under the Affordable Care Act, is no longer new. It's law. But many details about how the health care reform law will be carried out remain in question. Just how will health care be overhauled in a way that works for everyone? What will the benefits or penalties be as the finer points continue to be chiseled into place?
Employers, in particular, have nuances and challenges to work through. The law places new responsibilities on employers — those with under 50 employees, and those with over 50 employees. Over time, these just may change the face of employer-provided health care coverage. There may be tax implications or penalties for large and small employers alike. You need to know just how they are tied to that number of 50 employees.
At this time, the health care law itself will continue to unwind through 2018. That means ongoing change these next few years.
