Acupuncture Fallout From Obama Health Care Delay

acupunctureThe impact on acupuncture health insurance benefits by the Obama administration’s decision to partially delay enforcement of the Affordable Care Act has limited fallout. President ObamaSeveral factors play into tempering the effects of this move. The delay only applies to companies with more than 50 full-time employees. Approximately 94% of companies with 50 to 199 employees already provide health care coverage and 98% of companies with 200 or greater workers already provide health care coverage. Moreover, many statewide implementations compliant with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act are unaffected by this decision. There is no doubt that the political headwinds are strong in the pushback against the new health care legislation. Expect to see news media coverage and political ads trumping up a whirlwind of dark clouds surrounding the delay according to a recent report at HealthCMi.
