The Internal Revenue Service today finalized a rule revising its methodology for assessing whether employer-sponsored coverage is affordable for family members, as advocated by the AHA. The new methodology uses premiums for family coverage rather than individual coverage to assess whether an employee’s family members have access to affordable coverage, which affects whether they qualify for a premium tax credit for coverage purchased through a health insurance marketplace. The Administration estimates the change will make coverage more affordable for about 1 million Americans.
