Health care law's auto-enrollment provision will cause problems, NRA says

The National Restaurant Association is working across the board to make last year's health care law workable for restaurants.

As Congress considers changes to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and as regulators spell out the details on how employers will be required to comply, the Association is voicing the industry's strong concerns with parts of PPACA.

One of the industry's major concerns -- the "auto-enrollment" provision -- will require employers of 200 or more to automatically enroll new employees in a business's health benefits plan starting in 2014.

The National Restaurant Association is pressing Congress to repeal that part of the law.

"Because of the mobility of our workforce, the auto-enrollment provision found in PPACA, in addition to being redundant, would be expensive and burdensome," we said in a letter to Rep. Frank Guinta (R-N.H.), who recently introduced H.R. 2206 to repeal the auto-enrollment rules.

"Without its repeal, employers would have to automatically enroll full-time workers into their health insurance program, then turn around and remove them when they stop working shortly thereafter," the NRA told Guinta. "We support passage of this important piece of legislation and look forward to working with you to advance this bill through Congress."
