Employer Mandate Transition Relief Extended for 2015

Provided by GCG Financial, LLC

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) imposes a penalty on applicable large employers (ALEs) that do not offer affordable, minimum value coverage to full-time employees and their dependents. These penalties are often referred to as the “employer shared responsibility” or “pay or play” penalties.

On Feb. 10, 2014, the U.S. Treasury Department released final regulations implementing the employer shared responsibility provisions of the ACA. Under the final regulations, a package of limited transition rules provided for 2014 in the proposed regulations is extended to 2015. The final regulations also include a number of new transition rules for employers.
