Businesses Weighing Options Ahead of ACA Requirements
A growing number of employers are weighing their options in preparation for Affordable Care Act requirements that might require them to assume higher costs to provide health coverage to workers. For example, some companies are considering whether to provide employees with a pre-determined amount of money and selection of health plans, according to analysts. In addition, business also might direct more workers toward state health exchanges, the penalty for which could be less than the cost of providing benefits.
