The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (the “Act”) requires employers to report the cost of coverage under an employer-sponsored group health or medical plan. This requirement is now mandatory for sponsors of group health or medical plans, except for certain qualified small employers.
Several news stories around the web today discuss the United States Supreme Court’s Ruling on the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and what it could mean for franchised businesses.
The United States Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of most of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). The two key issues before the Court were the constitutionality of (1) the ACA’s “individual mandate,” which requires virtually everyone in the United States to buy health insurance or to pay a penalty for failing to do so, and (2) its requirement that states adopt new standards that would have significantly increased the number of Medicaid-eligible individuals (the so-called “Medicaid expansion”), or face loss of federal Medicaid funding.
In the aftermath of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on the Affordable Care Act, the International Franchise Association released a statement from its President & CEO, Steve Caldeira about the predicted impact of the Act on franchise businesses nationwide.
A new story in the Las Vegas Review Journal talks about the continued lack of filming incentives in Nevada, which means that Nevada will continue to lose production dollars and jobs to neighboring states like New Mexico.
