Health care reform: What employers can expect in 2014
Abstract: The launch of health care marketplaces under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is just one of the many important developments that go into effect during the next year. New tax credits, recordkeeping requirements and waiting periods all require tax planning and diligence for manufacturers that already offer — or are planning to offer — health insurance policies to their employees. This article discusses options for small businesses in regard to public marketplaces, along with the option of private marketplaces for larger businesses. A sidebar discusses the ACA’s large-employer health insurance mandate, to begin in 2015.
