United States – Supreme Court Issues Decision on Health Care Reform Legislation

Court Issues Decision on Health Care Reform Legislation

On June 28, 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court released its decision concerning the constitutionality of provisions of the health care reform legislation of 2010. The Court upheld the constitutionality of the major provisions of the legislation, including the individual mandate to purchase health insurance. With the health care reform legislation upheld, employers with globally-mobile employees now must contend with how they will handle the 3.8-percent health insurance tax on passive investment income and the 0.9-percent increase in the health insurance tax on wage income, for individuals earning more than $200,000 and couples earning more than $250,000.
