NRA analyzing latest round of regulations on health care law

As the federal government continues its work to implement the 2010 health care law, the National Restaurant Association is working to provide the restaurant industry's feedback on proposed regulations.

The most recent proposals come from the Departments of Health and Human Services and Treasury. The agencies on Aug. 12 released proposed regulations on how employers will interact with state insurance "exchanges" (which will market health insurance to many small businesses and individuals), as well as standards detailing what makes an employer health plan "affordable," and which individuals will qualify for tax credits and other government assistance to help them purchase health insurance health insurance through the exchanges with premium tax credits.

The Aug. 12 proposed regulations are extensive. The National Restaurant Association is analyzing this latest round of regulations to ensure that the rules are workable for restaurant employers, and will comment within the required 75-day comment period.

See more on the proposed rules:
-- Exchange eligibility and employer standards (proposed rule, fact sheet)
-- Premium tax credit eligibility (proposed rule, fact sheet)
-- Medicaid eligibility (proposed rule, fact sheet).
