The Affordable Care Act (ACA) included an automatic enrollment requirement for certain large employers in which employers with 200 or more employees would be required to automatically enroll employees in their health coverage. This requirement was not yet effective. It was intended to take effect once final regulations were issued and a final effective date was specified.
On Nov. 2, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, which included a provision repealing the ACA’s automatic enrollment requirement. Therefore, this requirement will not take effect at any point, and employers will not be required to automatically enroll employees in their group health plan coverage.
