Four Ways the Biden Presidency Could Impact Employer Health Coverage

Four Ways the Biden Presidency Could Impact Employer Health Coverage

With a new president in the White House, a new set of priorities and policies are already shaping everything from labor law to the economy. President Biden has also promised to make changes to the federal healthcare marketplace. In the latest episode of HR Party of One, I covered four different ways the new administration could change health coverage and how these updates could impact your team’s benefits.


Possible Obamacare Updates that Could Change Employer-Sponsored Coverage

For the past several years, employers have worked to provide healthcare coverage for their employees while also remaining compliant with provisions in the Affordable Care Act (ACA). With this in mind, the Biden administration is expected to take steps that could bolster the ACA in the coming years. 

Now, it might be tempting to think that the ACA exchanges don’t affect employer-sponsored coverage, considering it’s a public insurance option instead of a private one. In the newest episode of HR Party of One, I explain exactly why that’s not the case. To learn more about four key changes that might be on the way for the ACA—and how they could impact the way you do benefits—watch the video below:
