There’s been plenty of conversations over the Affordable Care Act, and it’s impact on business.
This week, we got some insight into what it means for Tompkins County’s largest employer, Cornell University.
While addressing faculty and staff at the university, President David Skorton was asked about the impacts of the health care law. He pointed to the Ithaca campus, and to the Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City, saying that both are impacted on the employee/employer side of things, but that the medical college is also impacted on the provider side.
As for employees of the university, Skorton didn’t indicate there would be major impacts.
“It’s reassuring to know that all the health plans are compliant, and we’ll just sort of see what goes on,” Skorton told university employees.
Skorton then said that the university does not anticipate any major price shifts for health insurance coverage at the school.
