Adam Solander Quoted in “Congress Passes 2-Year Cadillac Tax Delay, Repeal Possible”RevCycle Intelligence December 22, 2015
Adam C. Solander, a Member of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the firm’s Washington, DC, office, was quoted in RevCycle Intelligence, in “Congress Passes 2-Year Cadillac Tax Delay, Repeal Possible,” by Jacqueline DiChiara.
Following is an excerpt:
Any legislation that repeals the Cadillac Tax will burden the next administration, explained Adam C. Solander, member at Epstein Becker Green, to RevCycleIntelligence.com earlier this month.
“The Cadillac Tax will totally reshape how benefits are offered to employees. This is largely because of the way the Cadillac Tax thresholds are indexed for inflation,” he stated.
“The thresholds that trigger the tax are indexed based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI-U) and not medical inflation.”
“Because medical inflation far outpaces the CPI-U, the amount employers spend on healthcare will rise faster than the thresholds, eventually affecting every employer plan.”
Mr. Solander previously participated in a Q&A with RevCycle Intelligence and discussed how the Affordable Care Act’s Cadillac Tax will affect employers.
