House of Representatives Votes to Repeal Cadillac Tax
The House of Representatives voted to repeal the ACA’s Cadillac Tax via a bipartisan vote of 419-6. It’s slated for consideration in the Senate with companion bill S-684, which has 42 Democrat and Republican co-sponsors.
NAHU has long called for a full repeal of the Cadillac Tax. The tax has been twice delayed by NAHU-backed measures in 2015 and 2018. Since employers make plan decisions well ahead of a coverage year and pending rules have a direct impact on plan decisions, NAHU will closely follow legislative developments and lobby lawmakers in the coming weeks for a full repeal of the Cadillac Tax.
