RILA voices concern over Affordable Care Act ruling
Arlington, Va. -- The Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) gave voice to concerns after Thursday's Supreme Court ruling that upheld the individual-mandate within the Affordable Care Act.
“With the Supreme Court decision now behind us, the focus must turn to the employer-mandate and the effect that impending changes to employer-sponsored coverage will have on the nearly 170 million Americans who receive health care through their employer,” said RILA president Sandy Kennedy.
“While retailers are committed to continuing to provide health coverage to their employees, overregulation jeopardizes their ability to do so,” Kennedy continued.
“RILA continues to urge the Administration to protect retailers’ ability to offer quality, affordable coverage that fits the unique needs of their workforce and not to undermine the flexible, voluntary system that provides coverage to millions of employees and their families.”
