The Administration is announcing that it will provide an additional year before the ACA mandatory employer and insurer reporting requirements begin. This is designed to meet two goals. First, it will allow us to consider ways to simplify the new reporting requirements consistent with the law. Second, it will provide time to adapt health coverage and reporting systems while employers are moving toward making health coverage affordable and accessible for their employees. Within the next week, we will publish formal guidance describing this transition. Just like the Administration’s effort to turn the initial 21-page application for health insurance into a three-page application, we are working hard to adapt and to be flexible about reporting requirements as we implement the law.
Here is some additional detail. The ACA includes information reporting (under section 6055) by insurers, self-insuring employers, and other parties that provide health coverage. It also requires information reporting (under section 6056) by certain employers with respect to the health coverage offered to their full-time employees. We expect to publish proposed rules implementing these provisions this summer, after a dialogue with stakeholders - including those responsible employers that already provide their full-time work force with coverage far exceeding the minimum employer shared responsibility requirements - in an effort to minimize the reporting, consistent with effective implementation of the law.
Once these rules have been issued, the Administration will work with employers, insurers, and other reporting entities to strongly encourage them to voluntarily implement this information reporting in 2014, in preparation for the full application of the provisions in 2015. Real-world testing of reporting systems in 2014 will contribute to a smoother transition to full implementation in 2015.
We recognize that this transition relief will make it impractical to determine which employers owe shared responsibility payments (under section 4980H) for 2014. Accordingly, we are extending this transition relief to the employer shared responsibility payments. These payments will not apply for 2014. Any employer shared responsibility payments will not apply until 2015.
During this 2014 transition period, we strongly encourage employers to maintain or expand health coverage. Also, our actions today do not affect employees’ access to the premium tax credits available under the ACA (nor any other provision of the ACA).

Oh damn! Here comes another made-up crises...people will fall dead in the streets.
The article talks about filling out a 21 page application for Obamacare. Would you like to do that? It is a Government insurance application. The person has not seen one doctor! This is the beginning of Government Health Care.
What is happening? This is what is happening. I found this on the Internet. The 3 Easy Ways to RATION Health Care. After health care rationing, there will be room for the uninsured to receive almost free medical care.See link.

"What else is new with this Group?"
Why is this Law [Obamacare] now being called "the ACA - Affordable Care Act" when in the Federal Register it is "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 - PPACA"?
Unless congress passes a bill & the President signs said bill obamacare Will go into effect at Midnight 01/01/2014 as stated by Law now..... so how can this unPresident undo a Law he signed into Law way back in 2010????
May OUR Heavenly Father save US from an unUS....

Manipulation at it's finest. These clowns just change the Rules, according to the convenience of their schedule. The Corruption of this entire group is immoral, and thoroughly disgusting. Obamacare will make the American people, hopefully, realize they have been had. Even the Low-Info will come out of their comas when this garbage goes into action. So, as to keeping them ignorant until after the Elections, great idea!! May God send all of them to their respective Hells.
Oh sure, put off the main heartburn until AFTER the 2014 election, and, of course, the people won't catch the obvious CRAP from the REGIME!
Bastards are scared it will wake up voters. Implement it so people can feel the pain that Obozo has brought upon us. Then maybe people will wake up, use a brain cell, and get rid of the Obummer crew.
By that time will all be under martial law or inprisoned or killed, he shouldn't have much of a problem with the sheepeople left then.
Deceitful SOB's , no honor , no integrity , and no moral standards . For people like that deceit is real easy . It is very unfortunate that our own military doesn't have the gonads ( courage ) and commonsense to do what the Egyptian military has just done to their dictator , " deposed him " .
How convenient!! With hold the pain until AFTER the elections. Too much pain has already been felt at the hands of the democrats to let up on them now, they ALL need to go!
