For a while, it seemed that the “mini-med plan” — a fairly common offering by employers with low-wage and part-time populations (such as retail and hospitality businesses) — would be a casualty of the ACA, since the law prohibits the annual dollar limits that were a key feature of these low-cost plans. But other features of the ACA — the employer and individual “shared responsibility” mandates — may be encouraging employers to consider offering a sort of cousin to the mini-med, the so-called “skinny plan.”
