Keeping up on Healthcare Reform Requirements

By Claire Thayer, July 15, 2013

By now, many of you have heard the news that The Obama administration announced a one-year delay, until January 1, 2015 in the implementation of the employer mandate in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for employers with more than 50 full-time equivalent employees provide health care coverage to their full-time employees. Interesting timing, given that according to PwC US's latest Trendsetter Barometer survey, the majority of private companies (56 percent) say they're already in compliance with the upcoming provisions.  Additionally, the PwC survey finds that overall, most private companies (72 percent) consider themselves prepared for the ACA's next wave of requirements. Work remains to be done, however ― only 35 percent of private companies say they are well prepared.  Also, nearly three-fourths (74 percent) of private companies that have 50 or more employees say their healthcare coverage meets the ACA definition of affordability. Complete findings from this survey are here:
