PACE Act Now Law

Posted on October 23rd, 2015

The Protecting Affordable Coverage for Employees (PACE) Act, signed into law by President Obama on October 7, 2015 gives states the ability to continue to determine the size of their small group market rather than conforming to a national standard.

Most states currently define their small group market as employers with up to 50 employees, but the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was set to expand that definition in 2016 to include employers with up to 100 employees. The PACE Act allows each state to independently decide what small group market definition makes the most sense.
