A heads-up on health care reform – How it could affect your business
Abstract: The recently enacted Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) is a massive law with many provisions — and a large portion of those provisions don’t take effect until future years. This article offers a heads-up on a few of the act’s highlights that could change how businesses approach health care benefits for their employees. Depending on the size of the business, incentives or penalties may apply in order to induce employers to provide benefits. A sidebar discusses new IRS reporting requirements under the act.
