Answer Bank Tag: Terms for 'ACA coverage rules for employers'?

Question:

Coming at this cold; not sure what to make of all the ACA information I’m finding.

Our insurance company talks about “shared responsibility provisions.” Our ERISA lawyer talks about “4980H rules.” Vendors talk about “play or pay.” My predecessor’s hand-off notes talk about “the employer mandate.”

I know this is a big law. What am I missing?
