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.
Starting January 1, 2015, OSHA's updated record keeping rule will expand the list of severe injuries that all employers must report to OSHA. Establishments located in states under federal OSHA jurisdiction must begin to comply with the new requirements; those located in states that operate their own safety and health programs should check with their state plan for the implementation date of the new requirements.
