The Obama Administration announced this week that it will delay the implementation of a key provision of the Affordable Care Act, until 2015. The so-called employer mandate would have imposed a $2,000-3,000 fine on companies with 50 or more workers that do not provide affordable health insurance. The law defines “affordable” as costing no more than 9.5 percent of the worker’s income and covering at least 60 percent of health care costs. In Washington, FSRN’s Alice Ollstein has the details.
