Two House subcommittees have conducted hearings to get a clearer picture of the effect the decision to delay implementation of certain provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) is having on employers. The provisions, sometimes known as “pay-or-play,” are now set to take effect on Jan. 1, 2015, and will give organizations with 50 or more full-time workers the option of offering employees and their families health care benefits or paying a penalty. Critics of the health care reform law claim the postponement demonstrates that the law is unworkable and too complicated; supporters of the administration’s action say the delay is typical when rolling out a major reform to federal law.
