The Protecting Affordable Coverage for Employees (PACE) Signed

News Image 10-12-2015

President Obama has signed HR1624 the Protecting Affordable Coverage for Employees Act (PACE) into federal law. This action repeals the mandated transition of groups with 51 to 100 employees to the small group market. This requirement of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) originally was scheduled to go into effect 1/1/2016. Repeal of the transition now gives states the option to define their small group market up to 100 employees, if they choose.

BUA will continue to share information as it becomes available on this important legislative change and the impact it may have on your group clients.
