The Affordable Care Act (ACA) included a number of new requirements for employer-sponsored group health plans such as employer shared responsibility payments (the “employer mandate”), related reporting requirements, the prohibition on cost-sharing for certain preventive services, and the extension of child coverage to age 26. Some of these provisions may be modified or eliminated if the ACA is repealed, and some likely will remain. The Business Group supports legislation and regulatory guidance that minimize cost and administrative burdens associated with these requirements. Having flexibility to adapt compliance procedures to existing work, benefit, and administrative arrangements will reduce compliance burdens and allow employers to devote more resources toward maintaining and improving benefits for employees.
