Breaking News: Obama Administration Delays the Employer Mandate for One Year

On July 2, 2013, the Obama administration announced that the employer mandate aspect of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) will be delayed by one year.

This mandate requires businesses with 50 or more workers to provide health insurance coverage to employees. In an effort to give employers more time to prepare, the administration will start enforcing the mandate in 2015, rather than January 1, 2014.

There will be additional changes tied to this delay, and the administration has stated that they will provide formal guidance within the next week.
