The Federal and State Exchanges are up and running, and policies and plans have been updated to cover the long list of required services.  Now it is time to focus on the employer mandate known as “pay or play”.  Employers need to know if they are covered by the mandate and when they need to comply (2015 or 2016). Service Contract Act (SCA) employers need to consider how the mandate will increase the cost of their current cash-in-lieu arrangements.
