Adam Solander Quoted Article, “What’s to Come with Obamacare”

Adam Solander, an Associate in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the Washington, DC, office, was quoted in an article titled "What's to Come with Obamacare."

Following is an excerpt:

Uninsured patients fill out paperwork. Starting Jan. 1, more people should have access to health insurance. The Obama administration is still taking a political beating for its one-year delay of one major part of health reform — the requirement that all employers with more than 50 full-time workers provide health insurance for them.

That provision was going to go into effect in January. But it's not the biggest provision, and the White House says the most important reforms are still on track.

"It's a time bomb in the law," says Adam Solander with Epstein Becker Green, a Washington, D.C., legal and consulting firm. Employers who offer health insurance plans worth more than $10,200 a year will have to pay a 40 percent federal tax on that. "Employers will have to figure out ways to make their coverage cheaper," Solander says. "Hopefully, it will lower the cost of coverage."
