A penalty of $2,750 (for 2022) per full-time employee minus the first 30 will be incurred if the employer fails to offer minimum essential coverage to 95 percent of its full-time employees and their dependents, and any full-time employee obtains coverage on the exchange.

What is the impact of PPACA on employers and employees?

This circumstance is a natural tension between employer and employee created by PPACA. Great care must be taken by employers to sufficiently educate employees on the necessity of subsidy access denial.

Does an employer’s minimum essential coverage offer reduce the penalty?

If the employer offers minimum essential coverage to less than 95% of full-time employees, this offering does not diminish the total penalty amount. Since the “B” tax stems from the qualification for exchange subsidies, employers have an interest in being involved in the process through which exchange subsidies are granted.
