Employer Health Care Plans After The Affordable Care Act lays out key provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), one of the most controversial benefits law, and provides an overview of its effects. Coverage is not limited to the ACA, but includes other laws that are closely linked to the ACA. Because the ACA is intentionally integrated with existing law, this book pays special attention to the links between the ACA and existing laws. Because the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) is likely to be the chief enforcement mechanisms for the ACA, special attention is paid to the links between the ACA and ERISA. Key provisions of ERISA that are closely tied to the ACA are discussed in this book.
This book seeks to keep close fidelity with statutory and regulatory language. Courts pay attention to regulatory words and phrases; an important goal of this book is to provide language sufficiently accurate to present to a court.
Additionally, this book covers topics that have attracted wide-spread attention, such as employer mandated taxes, and also covers topics that have received much less attention but are of equal significance, such as discrimination by providers against gay and transgender individuals.
