Health Care Reform Whitepapers
PPACA’s Employer Mandate requires employers with more than 50 full-time equivalent employees to provide full-time workers with affordable coverage, or face penalties/taxes of either $2,000 or $3,000 per employee. The goal is to ensure as many American workers are covered by health plans through their employers as possible. The IRS was set to begin enforcing these penalties at the beginning of 2014. On July 2 the Obama Administration announced a one-year delay in enforcement action against applicable large employers who fail to provide health care coverage to their full-time workers. This announcement references an upcoming rule that will push back the enforcement of the tax penalties associated with the Employer Shared Responsibility provision (i.e., Employer Mandate) to 2015. The individual mandate still will go into effect on January 1, 2014
