Five Things Employers Would Change About the ACA

May 27, 2016

With the 2016 primary season coming to an end, and candidates at all levels turning their attention to the general election, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will remain a topic of much debate. Some candidates want to see it repealed; others want to keep it and improve upon it.

But according to John Barkett, director of policy affairs for Willis Towers Watson, here’s something that all candidates might want to consider. While most employers had concerns about the ACA, six years have passed since the bill was signed into law. At this point, many employers are not willing to take the risk and endure the added disruption of throwing it out and starting all over again. However, they do want to see major changes to the ACA.

In a recent bylined article in Employee Benefit News (EBN), Barkett shared the five things employers would change about the ACA, based on his numerous conversations with employers about the good, the bad and the ugly of adapting to this major piece of legislation and the changes it has brought to employer-sponsored health care.
