The proposed health care reform bill mandates that employers would have to pick up 72.5% of costs to insure full-time employees and would be required to cover some of the costs to insure part-time employees. Companies that do not comply would be forced to pay a fee based on 8% of their payroll. Small businesses and individuals could choose insurance through a national exchange, which would include a government-run plan and private insurers.
