Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Thank you for the information and your question. I can understand the confusion as the ACA is a very complex, detailed and lengthy piece of legislation. Although it is true that you aren't even required under Federal law to provide health insurance coverage for your employees, ACA still applies to other aspects of group health coverage that is offered, whether the employer has more or less than 50 employees. One area that applies to all, whether considered grandfathered or not, is the "waiting period" for coverage under offered plans. It is now not to be any longer than 90 days. Again this applies to small employers who don't otherwise have to offer group health plans but do. You can read a fairly good summary of the law and some FAQ about this issue by going to the following link: http://www.zanebenefits.com/blog/faqs-on-the-aca-90-day-waiting-period-rule

I wanted to touch base with you and make sure that you did not have any follow up questions for me from the answer I provided to you on the 10th. For some reason, the Experts are not always getting replies or ratings (at the top of the question/answer page you are viewing or in the pop up box for this question), which is how we get credit (paid by the Site) for our work, that the customer thinks have gone through. In your case I received neither. If you are having technical difficulties with reading, replying or rating, please let me know so that I can inform the Site administrator. Please note that Site use works best while using a computer and using either Google Chrome or Firefox.
In any event, it was a pleasure assisting you and I would be glad to attempt to assist you further on this issue, or a new legal issue, if needed. You can bookmark my page at: http://www.justanswer.com/law/expert-marsha411jd/
