AGC Urges Congress to Preserve & Strengthen Employer-Sponsored Health Care Coverage

AGC called upon all members of the new Congress to recognize the important voice employers have in debates about reforming our nation's health care system. Employer-sponsored coverage insures over 181 million American lives and has been the backbone of the U.S. health system for nearly eight decades. AGC believes that benefit offerings and coverage plans in the employer-sponsored system are as diverse as employers themselves and that there is no one-size-fits-all employer plan.
Specifically, AGC called on Congress to preserve the current tax treatment of employer-sponsored coverage, promote innovations and diversity of plan designs and offerings for employers, provide employers with compliance relief from burdensome regulations, repeal the Affordable Care Act taxes on employer-sponsored coverage, and protect ERISA.
