Washington, D.C. — The National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU) applauds congressional leaders and the Administration for passing legislation to end the government shutdown and continue to provide federal funding through February 8, 2018.
“H.R. 195 also includes several of NAHU’s major legislative priorities,” stated NAHU CEO Janet Trautwein. “The legislation delays the effective dates for the detrimental healthcare taxes included in the Affordable Care Act (ACA). H.R. 195 includes a two-year delay for the Cadillac Tax, which pushes the effective date to 2022, and implements a one-year moratorium on the Health Insurance Tax (HIT) for 2019. The package also includes renewing funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for six years. NAHU continues to support this critical program that provides health insurance coverage for more than 8 million children.
