Congress Approves Change To ACA’s Small Business Rules

The AP (10/2) reports that Congress yesterday approved “legislation aimed at preventing premium increases that some smaller businesses were expecting next year under President Barack Obama’s health care law.” Currently, the ACA defines small businesses as having up to 50 workers. That number increases to 100 on Jan. 1, 2016. The bill approved Thursday “would keep the small business definition at 50 workers but let states increase the number if they choose.”
