40 Percent Tax on Health Benefits Is Top Concern for Employers
The 40 percent tax on health benefits created by the Affordable Care Act is a top concern for employers both large and small.
Public and private sector employers are concerned that the tax will:
- Make it increasingly difficult to offer health care coverage that is not subject to the tax, particularly in high-cost areas of the country.
- Discourage innovative programs focused on prevention and wellness and efforts to promote increased consumer engagement in their own care that have proven effective at increasing health care quality while simultaneously moderating cost growth.
- Lead to increased out-of-pocket costs of health care coverage and discourage innovative plan designs or force employers to re-evaluate their health benefit offerings.

Support a two-year delay of the 40 percent tax. Give Congress and the Administration time to protect health benefits.
