Health Care Reform—2015 Update

Mar 24, 2015

These survey findings examine the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), legislation passed by the U.S. Congress in 2010, on organizations. Starting on January 1, 2015, the employer mandate became effective for organizations with 100 or more full-time equivalent employees working an average of at least 30 hours per week (including the sum of hours by part-time employees that added together equal “equivalent” full-time employe​es). Under the ACA, these employers must offer full-time employees and their dependents affordable health care coverage or be subject to penalties. Small businesses with 50 to 99 FTEs will need to start insuring full-time employees by January 1, 2016.
