EMPLOYMENT LAW FOR HUMAN RESOURCE PRACTICE CHAPTER 12 BENEFITS
As Walsh discusses, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) required that individuals sign up for health insurance, a mandate that was enforced by way of a tax penalty. In 2012 the Supreme Court upheld that aspect of the ACA based on Congress’ power to tax. But as part of an effort to undermine the ACA, Congress has since eliminated that tax penalty, thereby effectively repealing the individual mandate:
“Under the tax reform legislation, effective January 1, 2019, the tax is repealed by reducing the individual responsibility payment to zero for individuals who do not purchase health insurance that qualifies as minimum essential coverage. At this point, it is unclear what effect this might have on other aspects of the ACA, but it’s important for employers to understand that there is NO CHANGE to the employer mandate. That provision is completely unaffected by the tax legislation and the repeal of the individual mandate.” (Emphasis in original.)

Jake has two children with cystic fibrosis, each of whom has undergone a series of expensive medical procedures and requires medication on a continuing basis. When Jake submitted a request for approval for an experimental surgical treatment (with supporting medical documentation), the Repacordy plan administrator, well aware that the plan had already spent a lot of money on Jake’s kids, immediately sent the request back to Jake with one word, “Denied,” written across the first page.
A few days later, Repacordy told Jake that he was being permanently laid off because the company had decided to downsize his department. Jake was provided with no documentation related to his lay off and was escorted out of the plant the same afternoon.For the last 2 months, Jake has been looking for comparable work, so far unsuccessfully. Although he received a check for his accrued vacation pay, he’s received nothing else related to his Repacordy benefits or lay off. Today he found out that the company replaced him almost immediately and has since hired two additional employees for his department. All three new hires are single males with no dependents.
