Messing with Obamacare

Once upon a time, I did HR for the small nonprofit I worked for.  We had part-time employees.  In a few cases those employees were covered by our health insurance.  We paid a pro-rated share of their insurance.  It was very simple.  It required easy arithmetic calculations.  I could do them without help.  To solve the part-time employee problem, one that should never have existed in the first place, remove the minimum hours' requirement and require that employers pay the pro-rated share of employee premiums. Minimum of fuss.  No employers cutting employees to 29 hours.  Problem solved.
