The “Cadillac tax” has been top of mind lately for many business owners, mainly because they are still unsure of how the tax will affect their business. Proponents of the tax predict it will decrease health care costs by discouraging employers from offering high cost health plans and, instead, paying their employees more. Supporters of the Cadillac tax also expect it will cut health care costs by reducing free-spending health plans, which in turn can reduce the overall demand for health care services and make it more difficult for health care service costs to increase. The hope is that everyone, even those whose health plans are not affected by the implementation of the tax, will benefit from the reduced cost of care.
