Study: Employer mandate delay to have minor effect on Obamacare

The Hill, August 20, 2013
The Obama administration's decision to delay a requirement that employers provide their workers with health insurance "will have relatively few consequences" on the overall rollout of ObamaCare. That's the finding of a new study by the Rand Corporation, a nonprofit research organization, that looked at the effects of the administration's July decision to delay by a year a crucial provision of the healthcare reform law. The measure requires that companies with more than 50 full-time employees offer them health insurance or pay a penalty. It was scheduled go into effect next year, but is being pushed back to 2015 to accommodate businesses that had protested the requirement.
