Bill aims to end limited health coverage for large companies
Sacramento Business Journal

Large employers could no longer provide workers with minimal health plans that provide less than 60 percent of the cost of essential care, under legislation introduced this week by Assemblyman Roger Hernández.

The legislation, Assembly Bill 248, seeks to close a perceived loophole in the Affordable Care Act that allows companies with 50 or more employees to provide a form of limited health insurance, known as “skinny” plans, while avoiding federal penalties for opting out of health care.
