Subject: BREAKING NEWS: Employer Mandate Delayed One Year - Hot off the press from PBGH Policy Team
Attention Members: Bill Kramer just received the following email alert from POLITICO and we wanted to get the information out ASAP.
The Obama administration is delaying by one year the employer mandate to provide workers with coverage, according to a report by Bloomberg News.
It said two administration officials explained that the decision to push off the requirements until 2015 will come in regulatory guidance to be issued later this week. The move is a nod to employer groups, who have been asking for more time to implement the mandate.
Administration officials were not immediately available to confirm the report.
Our Policy team will continue to monitor the situation and provide additional details as they become available.
