Legal Alert – Short-Term Spending Bill Delays Cadillac Tax

On January 22, 2018, President Trump signed the Extension of Continuing Appropriations Act 2018, a short-term spending bill that:

  • Re-opened the federal government after a three-day shut-down;
  • Extends the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for six years, through fiscal year 2023;
  • Extends the existing suspensions of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) medical device excise tax through 2019 and the tax on high cost employer-sponsored health coverage (the “Cadillac Tax”) through 2021; and
  • Suspends the annual fee on health insurance providers for 2019.
