IRS Releases Proposed Rule for ACA’s Employer Mandate
Last month, the Internal Revenue Service released a proposed regulation that effectively implements the Affordable Care Act's employer mandate. The regulation clarifies that employers must extend coverage to workers' children who are under age 26, but not to workers' spouses. Employers also will not be required to subsidize health plans for dependents to the same extent they will for workers.
