ObamaCare Taking A Bite Out Of Businesses In Florida

- July 29, 2013

Employers In The Gainesville, Florida Area Are Taking Steps To Comply With ObamaCare. "Even with the employer mandate delayed until 2015, local employers are trying to plan ahead and in some cases have already taken action to account for the costs, insurance coverage and other requirements to comply with the Affordable Care Act." (Anthony Clark, "Local Companies Adjust To Costs Of Affordable Care Act," Gainesville Sun , 7/27/13)

"Gator Domino's Might Raise Prices On Pizza To Pay For The Patient Protection And Affordable Care Act." (Anthony Clark, "Local Companies Adjust To Costs Of Affordable Care Act," Gainesville Sun , 7/27/13)

  • ObamaCare Will Cost Gator Domino's $70,000 To $100,000 In Extra Costs. "The extra year should clear up confusion about the employer mandate, said Freddie Wehbe, franchise owner of Gator Domino's. After attending several local and corporate seminars and hearing from consultants, 'no one had the same answers,' he said. Wehbe said he spent about 40 hours trying to calculate his costs of paying for coverage or penalties, arriving at $70,000 to $100,000 a year, 'but there was no clear formula about exactly how it would work.' The company decided not to cut employee hours, but would have to raise prices, he said." (Anthony Clark, "Local Companies Adjust To Costs Of Affordable Care Act," Gainesville Sun , 7/27/13)

"Santa Fe College Has Placed A Cap On The Hours Part-Time Employees Can Work And The Credit Hours Adjunct Faculty Can Teach To Limit Its Costs." (Anthony Clark, "Local Companies Adjust To Costs Of Affordable Care Act," Gainesville Sun , 7/27/13)

  • The College's Most Recent Budget Capped Part-Time Employee Hours At 27.5 And Limited Teaching To 12 Credit Hours A Semester For Adjuncts. "At Santa Fe College, the board of trustees approved a budget at its June 18 meeting that includes a cap of 27.5 hours on part-time employees and a maximum of teaching 12 credit hours per term for adjunct faculty for the fiscal year that started July 1." (Anthony Clark, "Local Companies Adjust To Costs Of Affordable Care Act," Gainesville Sun , 7/27/13)

"Crime Prevention Security Systems Is Already Paying 20 Percent More For Employee Health Insurance This Year And Might Consider Shifting Some Employees To Part Time If The Costs Go Up Too Much More." (Anthony Clark, "Local Companies Adjust To Costs Of Affordable Care Act," Gainesville Sun , 7/27/13)

  • If Health Care Costs Continue To Rise For Crime Prevention Security Systems, The Company Plans To Shift Full-Time Employees To Part-Time. "John Pastore is majority owner of both Crime Prevention Security Systems and Universal Security Monitoring, two companies that will count as one - with about 60 total employees - under a provision of the act designed to thwart attempts to avoid the employer mandate by splitting companies. The companies already provide health coverage to all employees. Insurance costs rose 20 percent this year and Pastore said if the costs go up too much more, they would look at moving some employees to part-time positions." (Anthony Clark, "Local Companies Adjust To Costs Of Affordable Care Act," Gainesville Sun , 7/27/13)

"Axogen Inc. Will Have To Pay For An Additional Employee Just To Keep Up With The Act's Reporting Requirements." (Anthony Clark, "Local Companies Adjust To Costs Of Affordable Care Act," Gainesville Sun , 7/27/13)

  • ObamaCare Will Cost Axogen $80,000 To $100,000 In Extra Expenses. "'We estimate this additional work out of pocket, even at our size, will cost $80,000 to $100,000 a year in extra expenses, plus an additional employee, because we sell in the health care field,' Zaderej said." (Anthony Clark, "Local Companies Adjust To Costs Of Affordable Care Act," Gainesville Sun , 7/27/13)
