Straight talk on health care reform: Waivers maintain coverage, allow time for compliance

Businesses, labor unions and even entire states have been granted waivers exempting them from one provision of the Affordable Care Act. Opponents of the national health care reform law argue that these waivers are evidence that the new law is onerous and impractical. They also suggest that waivers were granted out of favoritism and that less-well-connected business and organizations will have to pay more to make up the difference.

Those criticisms are misleading and do not reflect the reasoning behind the waivers.
