Free choice vouchers are latest provision eliminated from health reform law

The recent budget bill signed into law by President Obama on April 15th, eliminated the Free Choice Voucher program under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). The program would have required employers to provide low-income employees who declined their employer's health coverage with an employer-paid voucher to seek coverage in the health insurance exchanges.
