O.M.G., this is bad. Little did I know that the slowly dwindling stockpile of Halloween candy in my pantry could be the last we see of . . . CHOCOLATE! NO!!!!!
You may recall the circuit panel ruling in Halbig v. Burwell this past Summer. This is a little case with huge potential implications for the ACA. I say potential because the panel holding was quickly vacated by the DC Circuit Court of Appeals.
Last week, the IRS released Notice 2014-69. The notice states that plans that do not provide in-patient hospitalization or physician services do not provide "minimum value" as that term is defined by the ACA.
