In the budget legislation given final approval by the U.S. Senate on Oct. 30 and signed by President Obama, is a provision that repeals a requirement under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that employers with at least 200 employees automatically enroll employees who do not select coverage. The automatic enrollment requirement has yet to go into effect, and regulators have not issued final rules. According to benefits groups, the requirement would have been burdensome for companies, which would have had to contend with employees being automatically enrolled and later found to be covered by a health plan offered by their spouse's employer.
