INDIANAPOLIS -

Two dozen Indiana public schools have joined a federal lawsuit against several government agencies in connection with the Affordable Care Act.

Fifteen schools were part of the original suit against the Internal Revenue Service, the United States Department of the Treasury, the United States Department of Health and Human Services and the United States Department of Labor that was filed in October.

The lawsuit challenges new IRS regulations implementing the Affordable Care Act and challenges the employer mandate provision of the law, which requires applicable large employers to offer health insurance to full-time employees or face financial penalties.

"All Indiana public school corporations provide comprehensive health insurance coverage to most of their employees. However, the practical reality is that most Indiana public school corporations do not have the financial resources to provide affordable, minimum value coverage to all employees who work in excess of 30 hours of service per week," said Jim Hamilton, an attorney at the law firm representing the schools.
