Tampa, Florida – Empire Underwriters, a leading National Insurance Wholesaler, Excess and Surplus lines facility and Program Manager, today announced the launch of a new product focused on the mandated Affordable Care Act of 2015 for companies with 100 or more employees. Beginning in 2015, the Affordable Care Act requires companies with 100 or more full-time or full-time equivalent (FTE) employees to either offer minimum essential coverage to at least 70 percent of full-time employees or pay a penalty tax. “Companies face a huge expense in 2015, either for health insurance or in penalties. Our new solution provides agents and their clients with an affordable health care option while staying compliant with the Affordable Care Act Mandate,” says Greg Brittain, Vice President or Workers Compensation and Alternative Programs.
