As you may have heard, on March 6th the U.S. House of Representatives issued two bills to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  The two bills are referred to as the “American Health Care Act”.  Debate on this legislation is scheduled to begin this week.  If passed, the new law would not repeal the ACA in its entirety, but would make several key changes.  Attached is a detailed overview of the proposed changes as well as the provisions that will not be impacted.

The most important changes that will impact you and your employees are the following:
§  The employer mandate and the individual mandate would effectively be repealed retroactive to December 31, 2015 by reducing penalties imposed under these provisions to zero ($0).
§  Increases the maximum HSA contribution limit to at least $6,550 for self-only coverage and $13,100 for family coverage.
§  Postpones the Cadillac Tax until January 1, 2025.
§  The ACA limits the amount an individual may contribute to a health FSA to $2,500 (adjusted each year – currently $2,650).  The new law would repeal the limitation on contributions for taxable years beginning after December 31, 2017.
§  Continues the subsidies for individual coverage but changes the qualifications, the amounts and how it is administered.

Rising health care costs and employee absenteeism (and “presenteeism”) continue to be an extraordinary ongoing challenge to all organizations.  The win-win formula for controlling costs is to consider initiatives that positively influence behaviors without any adverse impact on your employees.

On January 20, 2017, President Donald Trump signed an executive order addressing the Affordable Care Act (ACA), as his first act as president. The order states that it is intended to “to minimize the unwarranted economic and regulatory burdens” of the ACA until the law can be repealed and eventually replaced. The executive order broadly directs the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and other federal agencies to waive, delay or grant exemptions from ACA requirements that may impose a financial burden.


An executive order is a broad policy directive that is used to establish how laws will be enforced by the administration. It does not include specific guidance regarding any particular ACA requirement or provision, and does not change any existing regulations.  As a result, the executive order’s specific impact will remain largely unclear until the new administration is fully in place and can begin implementing these changes.
