SORT BY Relevancy
We all knew that the Affordable Care Act was going to require some changes to employers' group health plans and related documentation. Many employers held off on making modifications to see how things would shake out at the Supreme Court. It's been two months since the court upheld the ACA, and it's time to get started - if you haven't already! There's a lot of hard work that needs to be done to get plans in shape and in compliance with the new rules and regulations. There
Don't expect an aria, but our Monday guest is quite capable of it. Instead David Kravitz will come on as lawyer and poltiical analyst to discuss the Affordable Care Act. ACA, or in the moment, ObamaCare, survived the huge challenge before the SCOTUS. We'll discuss with David its constitutionality, its future, and perhaps how the tax angle arose and what it means. He is well known also as a founder of BlueMassGroup.
Evaluating the Implementation of Obamacare
Vermont has published the first proposed health rates in the country to go into effect after the Affordable Care Act goes into effect. Although Vermont may not be the best state to represent the overall impact on individual health insurance costs, those first signs suggest rates that are in line with current rates. My guest Philip Galewitz is a reporter for Kaiser Health News and we have him in studio to talk about this and other things we can expect after the ACA goes into effect October 1.
The Supreme Court as an Issue in Presidential Elections
The Supreme Court often comes up as an election issue. You hear about activist justices or bad Constitutional interpretation. This is not a new phenomenon as the Supreme Court – as well as the lower courts – have become expected to weigh on issues that were once considered political questions rather than legal ones. We saw such decisions become major issues in the last presidential election as they took on the Affordable Care Act, Arizona’s Immigration Law and even same-sex marriage, although that was decided well after the election. How much of a role does the Court play in federal elections now and throughout our Constitutional history? For that, we talk to William Ross, a Professor at Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, Alabama.

The Individual Mandate
Beginning in 2014, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires most individuals to obtain acceptable health insurance coverage for themselves and their family members or pay a penalty. Because this provision has the effect of “requiring” individuals to have coverage, it is often referred to as the “individual mandate.” Individuals may be eligible for an exemption from the penalty in certain circumstances.
On Jan. 30, 2013, the Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Treasury issued two proposed rules relating to the individual mandate. These rules outline exemptions from the individual mandate, explain how the penalty will be computed and establish standards and procedures for designating certain coverage as constituting “minimum essential coverage.”
How Much Is the Penalty?
The penalty for not obtaining acceptable health insurance coverage will be phased in over a three-year period, and is the greater of two amounts—the “flat dollar amount” and “percentage of income amount.”
