ACA’s Automatic Enrollment Requirement Repealed

ACA’s Automatic Enrollment Requirement Repealed

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) included an automatic enrollment requirement for certain large employers. This requirement was intended to take effect once final regulations were issued and a final effective date was specified.

On Nov. 2, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, which included a provision repealing the ACA’s automatic enrollment requirement.

Therefore, this requirement will not take effect at any point, and employers will not be required to automatically enroll employees in their group health plan coverage.
