Last week I posted that an obscure portion of the ACA took effect which barred and penalized business owners ( generally those with under 50 employees) from having some type of health care reimbursement policy in effect.
Today I learned that a bipartisan group of legislatures have introduced bills in both the Congress and Senate that would take the sting out of the law and permit small employers to continue the reimbursement arrangement.
I have not been a fan of healthcare reimbursement plans generally because I have witnessed employers not offering this to all employees, but rather they picked their favorites and provided this to them as a “reward” or “bonus” if you will. If the employer provided it to all, I had no problem with it.
If you would like to know more see House (H.R. 2911) and Senate (S. 1697) known as the Small Business Healthcare Relief Act
