ACA Mandates Remain in Effect 

Dave Kyllo

With the decision a few weeks ago to withdraw the “American Health Care Act” from consideration in the U.S. House of Representatives, efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are on hold for now. This means that the individual and employer mandates under the ACA remain in effect. 


The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has guidance about the individual mandate that answers many of the common questions individuals and families may have about the ACA. The IRS also has guidance for employers about the employer mandate.  


It is likely that Congress will again consider repealing and replacing all or part of the ACA again in the future. AHCA/NCAL has created a special web page containing the latest news related to the ACA. In addition, AHCA/NCAL will continue to keep members apprised of any developments to members about important ACA developments as they occur through our AHCA/NCAL member communications.


Employers currently renewing their employee health benefit plan should choose a plan that is ACA compliant. AHCA/NCAL Insurance Solutions was created to help members save money on their employee benefit plans. To explore your health plan options available through AHCA/NCAL Insurance Solutions, contact Dave Kyllo at 202-898-6312 or Nick Cianci at (202-898-2841) or email us at ahcainsurancesolutions@ahca.org.
