Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act – Are your employee health benefits up to snuff?
Abstract: Some of the provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act have already gone into effect. Others that could affect nonprofit employers will become law in 2014. The primary employer provision of the law applies only to larger nonprofits, but the act offers a tax credit to encourage smaller nonprofits to offer health care benefits to their staff members. This article offers a summary of some of the actions nonprofit employers are expected to take. A sidebar addresses nonprofit hospital accountability.
