HR Magazine;Sep2015, Vol. 60 Issue 7, p78
The article presents a debate on whether the U.S. Congress should repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Cadillac Tax, a 40% excise tax on certain employer health plans, that takes effect in 2018. Tevi Troy, president of the American Health Policy Institute, explains that the tax imposes significant costs on both employers and employees and should be repealed. University of Chicago professor Harold Pollack believes that the tax would generate savings to support higher wages and improved benefits.
