In a major win for restaurants and other employers, a provision of the Affordable Care Act that was confusing, redundant, bureaucratic and costly for both employers and employees is now finally, officially dead.
President Obama yesterday signed a budget bill that ends the ACA's unpopular and unworkable auto-enrollment mandate, which would have forced employers of 200 or more to automatically enroll full-time employees in company health plans if they hadn't already opted out. It's been a high-priority ACA legislative fix for the NRA and their members for more than four years. They worked closely with other employers in the E-FLEX Coalition to make it happen. Repealing the mandate was one of House Speaker John Boehner's final actions.
