In a perfect world, the ACA would be repealed and replaced at the same time. Unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect world. It appears that Republicans recognize this reality, and they have adopted a strategy to repeal portions of the ACA in the short-run, and replace the ACA in the long-run. Although not ideal, many argue that this strategy gives Republicans the opportunity to meet certain political demands, while working out the practical details to ensure minimal disruption as the health insurance industry transitions away from the ACA to a new set of insurance standards. Can they pull it off? It’s an open question. Our program will walk through the ACA “repeal and replace” exercise step-by-step, and we will discuss what it all means for employers.
In other news, legislation was recently enacted to allow employees of employers with fewer than 50 “full-time equivalent employees” to purchase an individual market plan with tax-free employer contributions, provided certain requirements are met. What are these requirements? Our program will decipher them for you.
