Expert Explains Employer ‘Play or Pay’ Mandate Under ACA

What is considered both affordable and adequate health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA)? A new video from a BLR Legal Editor keeps you informed.

In 2014, one of the most significant provisions under the ACA becomes effective—the employer responsibility mandate—commonly referred to as ‘play or pay.’
Under the health care reform law, only ‘applicable large employers’ are subject to the play or pay provision.

In this video, ACA expert Jessica Webb-Ayer, a Legal Editor at BLR, defines applicable large employers, explains the play or pay decision such employers must make by the end of 2013, and provides details about the potential penalties under the law.
