The Crawford Advisors benefits webinar series provides up to date compliance information for HR executives across the U.S.
Hunt Valley, MD (PRWEB) August 11, 2014
Join Crawford Advisors Senior Counsel Patrick Haynes as he reviews recent Federal Appeals Court rulings and the potential impact on larger employer health plans. The D.C. Federal Circuit Court in Halbig v. Burwell, ruled that the Affordable Care Act only permits subsidies for individuals enrolling through state exchanges (not the federal exchange). The subsequent King v. Burwell 4th Circuit ruling says that the rule issued by the IRS was “a permissible exercise of the agency’s discretion.” The conflicting rulings raise the possibility that the dispute will ultimately be resolved by the Supreme Court. In the interim, employers need to help guide employees on the following questions:
- How are individual subsidies impacted?
- What happens if the DC Appeals Court decision is upheld?
- Do employees need to file for a refund?
- What are the tax implications?
