ACA Penalties for Employers That Don’t Offer Coverage

The Affordable Care Act does not require businesses to provide health benefits to their workers, but larger employers face penalties if they don’t make affordable coverage available. The Obama Administration announced “transition relief” under which the penalties went into effect in 2015 for employers with 100 or more employees and will go into effect in 2016 for employers with 50 or more workers. This simple flowchart illustrates how those employer responsibilities work.
