Garrett Fenton Quoted on the Affordable Care Act's Employer Mandate Delay in Employee Benefit News

"Industry Reacts to Employer Mandate Delay"
Employee Benefit News

In this article, Garrett Fenton is quoted on the Administration's recent announcement that it is delaying the employer mandate portion of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). "For many employers, the announced delay of the pay-or-play rules, and related employer reporting requirements, is welcome relief," Fenton said, "but employers should be aware that so far no delay has been announced with respect to other aspects of the law, which may be related to the pay-or-play mandate, in 2014."

According to Fenton, "...despite the announced delay, it appears that employers (or insurers for insured plans) will still need to determine if their coverage provides at least 60% 'minimum value' for 2014, and confirm as much in their upcoming summary of benefits and coverage documents."
