The House Ways and Means Committee is considering a bill that could narrow the scope of the employer health insurance “shared responsibility” requirements.
The committee plans to mark up the mandate bill Tuesday morning.
The bill, H.R. 2575, would change the definition federal agencies use when deciding whether someone is a full-time worker for purposes of health coverage under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
PPACA defines full-time as at least 30 hours per week.
H.R. 2575, the “Save American Workers Act of 2013” bill, would change the cut-off to 40 hours and would take effect retroactively.
