ACS CAN Comments on the proposed rule on the Health Insurance Premium Tax Credit

October 27, 2011

ACS CAN filed comments to the Internal Revenue Service on the Health Insurance Premium Tax Credit proposed rule expressing deep concern about the IRS' proposed method for determining whether employment based coverage is affordable for individuals eligible for coverage through a family member's employment.  ACS CAN urged the IRS to determine affordability by looking at the cost of coverage for the family, rather than only looking at the cost of coverage for the employee.
