ABSTRACT
The article reports on the extension of the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama of the mandatory employer coverage by one year, to go into effect in 2015, instead of 2014. According to Mark J. Mazur of the Department of the Treasury, the extension reflects the concerns on the complexity of the requirements for the coverage. It is inferred that the extended period will enable the administration to prepare for a smoother transition to full implementation in 2015.
