The Obama administration giving some employers more time to offer workers healthcare.

Companies with 50 to 99 employees will now have until 2016 to comply with the employer mandate.

Larger companies are also getting a break. They must offer insurance to at least 70 percent of full-time workers in 2015. That threshold will go up to 95 percent in 2016.
