80% of Employers Won't Impose Cost-Sharing
if ACA Mandate is Overturned

October 27, 2022– According to EBRI survey findings released this week, 80% of employers won’t impose cost sharing on preventive services if the ACA preventive services mandate is overturned. The Section 2713 mandate, which incorporates V-BID principles to expand first-dollar coverage of preventive care services for an estimated 167 million Americans, is being challenged by U.S. Supreme Court case Braidwood v. Becerra. 

This news follows a recent analysis showing that the costs of covering select preventive services are very low and would have minimal impact on overall employer health care spending.
