Obamacare Equal Coverage Rule Delayed Until After Elections
The Obama administration has delayed the Obamacare provision that would have required employers to make the same health benefits available to employees that it does to top executives until after the midterm elections.
As the New York Times reported on Saturday, the Obamacare law, "adopted nearly four years ago, says employer-sponsored health plans must not discriminate 'in favor of highly compensated individuals' with respect to either eligibility or benefits."
However, the Internal Revenue Services (IRS) now say they do not know how to define what "highly compensated means."
The ban on health plan discrimination was supposed to go into effect six months after Obamacare was signed into law on March 23, 2010, reports the New York Times.
