The Affordable Care Act after the Supreme Court

The dust has settled! The Supreme Court has determined that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is constitutional and it is important to begin to plan for your future responsibilities, as well as, becoming informed about ACA provisions which may lead to increased future employer costs. While the forthcoming Presidential Election might impact ACA, it is naïve to ignore your current responsibilities or not plan for the future. As indicated below, penalties for failure to comply with ACA provisions are significant and even with a major political change in November; many of your ACA responsibilities will not change.

The ACA provisions will be implemented through 2018. Many of the provisions will impact Medicare and Medicaid only. Therefore for the purpose of the following timeline, we have only identified those provisions which we believe will require employer action, and in some instances, will impact future employer healthcare costs. However, this is not intended to be a complete listing of all of the ACA provisions.
