it’s still with us and may be for a long-time to come
Just the other day the Senate was finally able to garner enough votes to begin formal discussions to the floor on whether to repeal and/or repeal and replace what has become known as Obama Care (the House previously passed their ACA repeal bill, the American Health Care Act).
While no one in Congress, on either side of the aisle, privately denies the fact that the program is going broke and is unsustainable in its present form, to date few in Washington have been willing to risk their political futures to do anything about it. So, while we can yet hope that something will be done to resolve the issue of healthcare in America, until that day comes Obama Care remains with us. For employers that means they remain obligated to fulfilling their duties under the law as it is presently written.
I recently came across this helpful reminder published by payroll and human resources giant, ADP, a long-time friend to CMA on what employers should be considering when it comes to providing and reporting on their health care benefits. You might want to check it out.
