Health Care Reform: "Pay or Play" Requirements Delayed Until 2015
The U.S. Treasury Department has announced that it will delay enforcement of the "pay or play" requirements for one year. As a result, any penalties will not apply until 2015. The "pay or play" provisions require large employers to offer affordable health insurance that provides a minimum level of coverage to full-time employees (and their dependents) or pay a penalty tax. The requirements were originally to become effective on January 1, 2014. The delay is a result of transition relief being provided for 2014 with respect to certain employer and insurer reporting requirements. The delay does not affect the application or effective dates of other Affordable Care Act provisions.Learn more and see Formal Agency Guidance.<back to top>
