The Administration will no doubt continue to try to weaken the Affordable Care Act. Americans are very concerned about losing some of its protections, such as the continued coverage for pre-existing conditions, for dependents up to the age of 26, for women’s health care — especially, reproductive issues — for preventive care, etc. Employers can — and should — offer health care policies that include these benefits, instead of providing only the bare minimums required by law.
