Large Employer Health Plans Could Also See Some Impacts From Obamacare Overhaul
Jan 17, 2017 4:45 PM - If you think that because you get health insurance through your job at a big company, you won’t be affected if Republicans overhaul Obamacare, think again. Several of the law’s provisions apply to plans offered by large employers too (with some exceptions for plans that were in place before the law passed in March 2010). It’s not yet clear how President-elect Donald Trump and the congressional Republicans plan to revamp the federal health law. They have not agreed on a plan, and they do not have enough votes in the Senate to fully repeal the current statute. So they are planning to use a budgeting rule to disassemble part of the law, and that will limit what they can change. But they also may seek revisions in important regulations and guidance that have determined how the law is implemented.
