ACA Remains the Law of the Land: What Does This Mean for Employers?

“Obamacare is the law of the land…. We’re going to be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future.” – Representative Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House, March 24, 2017 Speaker of the House Paul Ryan pulled the American Health Care Act (AHCA) from consideration by the House of Representatives, which means the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was not amended and remains the law of the land for the foreseeable future. At this time, there does not appear to be a clear pathway to reviving ACA repeal and replace legislation. But what does this mean for employers? For employers, this means all ACA mandates, requirements, and potential penalties remain in effect at this time. For example, the employer “shared responsibility” mandate and related employer reporting requirements have not been amended and remain in place and enforceable by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Workforce Quotes ADP Expert About ACA Compliance

Workforce Quotes ADP Expert About ACA Compliance

Workforce has posted an article titled “Despite Repeal Efforts, ACA Compliance Moves Forward” that extensively quotes ADP SME Ellen Feeney, vice president, Counsel, Global Compliance, on the need for compliance with the current provisions of the Affordable Care Act while the incoming administration evaluates its next steps regarding the law. “Given the Republican sweep in the White House, Senate and House of Representatives, the new makeup of our government represents a potentially significant change not just for ACA, but for tax policy, Fair Labor Standards Act, pay equity and more,” [Feeney] said in an email. “First and foremost, it’s important to focus on facts vs. speculation. Change won’t happen overnight. The Affordable Care Act is the law, and will remain so until it’s not. Ten million people are getting subsidies through the marketplaces and 20 million total are insured through the public marketplaces. A wholesale replacement of the Affordable Care Act would require congressional action and would take time.” Read the entire article at Workforce. Share this:Click to email...
