ACA’s Automatic Enrollment Provision Repealed

The President recently signed legislation repealing health care reform’s automatic enrollment requirement. As background, health care reform required employers that were subject to the FLSA, that had more than 200 full-time employees, and that had one or more health benefit plans to automatically enroll new full-time employees in one of the employer’s group health plans and to continue the enrollment of current employees. No effective date had been specified, and later agency guidance had indicated that employers were not required to comply until final regulations were issued. Final regulations were not issued before repeal; therefore, employers were never required to comply with this provision.
