What is the Employer Mandate Delay?

Wooden gavel in front of American flag. Do you know about the Employer Mandate Delay? The Employer Mandate Delay, also known as the Employer Shared Responsibility Payment provision, was a significant component of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), often referred to as Obamacare. It was designed to require certain large employers to offer health insurance coverage to their employees or face financial penalties. However, the mandate’s implementation faced several delays and changes over the years.

Originally, the mandate was scheduled to take effect in 2014 but was postponed until 2015 and further adjusted in subsequent years. Under the mandate, applicable large employers, those with 50 or more full-time equivalent employees, were required to provide affordable health insurance that met minimum essential coverage requirements to their full-time employees and their dependents.

If an employer failed to comply with the mandate, they could face substantial financial penalties. These penalties were triggered if at least one full-time employee received a premium tax credit or cost-sharing reduction for enrolling in a health insurance plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace.

The delays and changes to the Employer Mandate were primarily driven by the challenges faced by businesses in adapting to the new requirements and the need to provide employers with more time to understand and implement the rules.
