Supreme Court Affirms Affordable Care Act: What Employers Need to Know

6/28/2012

The Supreme Court has affirmed the Affordable Care Act, including the individual mandate.  What this means is that employers will continue on the path that they have been on, namely implementing the various programs and initiatives mandated under federal health care reform.   Some of the impending changes are coverage of women’s preventive health care, a Summary of Benefits and Coverage that must be distributed with fall open enrollments, and reporting of health care costs on W-2s.

While the court’s ruling removes some of the cloud of uncertainty for employers, we still face elections in the fall that could change control of the White House and Congress – and with them, changes to health care reform.

Warner Norcross attorneys April Goff and Norbert Kugele are available to comment on today's decision.  Call 616.485.1432 to schedule an interview.
