NRA calls some elements of health care law "fundamentally unworkable"

The National Restaurant Association filed comments with the Internal Revenue Service and Department of Health and Human Services Oct. 31 on some of the most critical regulations for employers under the 2010 health care law.

At issue are such critical topics as defining what makes an employer health plan "affordable" for employees; how the HHS proposes employers will report information to the 50+ state exchanges and multiple federal agencies; how the IRS will verify whether covered employers offer the required "minimum essential coverage"; which employees will qualify for a premium tax credit to help them buy health insurance; and more.

The NRA filed two sets of comments -- one as part of the Employers for Flexibility in Health Care coalition and another with 41 state restaurant associations.

"Most in our industry, and the employer community in general, remain concerned that the employer requirements under the law are fundamentally unworkable and ultimately will require repeal or, at the very least, re-examination through the legislative process," according to the regulatory comments submitted by the NRA and 41 state restaurant associations.
