The Future Of The Cadillac Tax, Kathryn L. Moore Jan 2016

The Future Of The Cadillac Tax, Kathryn L. Moore

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

The Affordable Care Act includes a 40 percent excise tax on high-cost employer-sponsored health care coverage. Often referred to as the “Cadillac tax,” this excise tax is one of the most controversial elements of the Affordable Care Act.

Currently scheduled to go into effect in 2020, the Cadillac tax poses serious challenges and uncertainty for employers. On the one hand, recent estimates suggest that the Cadillac tax may hit as many as 20 percent of employers with health care plans in 2020. On the other hand, there is a serious question as to whether the tax will be repealed before ...

The Future Of Employment-Based Health Insurance After The Patient Protection And Affordable Case Act, Kathryn L. Moore Jan 2011

The Future Of Employment-Based Health Insurance After The Patient Protection And Affordable Case Act, Kathryn L. Moore

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

In the United States, unlike in all other advanced industrial states, health care is financed principally through employment-based health insurance. In 2009, more than 156 million individuals under the age of sixty-five, or 59% of that population, were covered by employment- based health insurance.

On March 21, 2010, President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). Described as seminal as the enactment of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), PPACA fundamentally reforms the American health care system. PPACA, however, does not eliminate the system’s reliance on employment- based health insurance. Instead, it builds on, and ...


The New Retiree Health Vebas, Kathryn L. Moore Jan 2008

The New Retiree Health Vebas, Kathryn L. Moore

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

Granted tax exempt status since 1928, Voluntary Employees' Beneficiary Associations (VEBAs) have received considerable attention since the fall of 2007 when General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler reached separate landmark agreements with the United Auto Workers union pursuant to which the companies agreed to contribute billions of dollars to VEBAs in exchange for transferring their retiree health care liabilities to the VEBAs. Specifically, General Motors agreed to contribute $31.9 billion while Ford agreed to contribute $13.6 billion, and Chrysler agreed to contribute $11 billion. Sometimes referred to as "defeasance" VEBAs, these "new," "stand-alone" retiree health VEBAs, differ significantly from ...

Kentucky Law Survey: Insurance, Richard H. Underwood Jan 1982

Kentucky Law Survey: Insurance, Richard H. Underwood

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

Kentucky courts have recently decided a number of cases that have a significant impact on insurance law. Several decisions dealt with the assertion of rights at variance with contract provisions and the degree to which the law will recognize the reasonable expectations of the insured. The courts also considered novel questions concerning cancellation by substitution, the application and validity of various exclusions in homeowners and automobile liability policies, the application and validity of the escape clause in automobile liability policies, and the stacking of automobile liability coverages. This Survey will examine those questions, as well as the growing body of ...
