ANCOR Applauds Obama Administration to Delay ACA Employer Requirements for One Year

July 3, 2013
In a welcomed but unexpected development, the Obama AdmInistration announced a one year delay of the employer shared responsibilities under the Affordable Care Act. ANCOR applauds this decision to postpone the 2014 deadline, and we urge the White House, Treasury and CMS to work with providers and other stakeholders to address implementation issues.This delay gives the Administration and the Treasury Department time to consider issues raised, including ANCOR’s comments proposing a tiered approach to penalties to account for Medicaid state rates that do not reflect increased costs of compliance.
