Florida restaurant adds Obamacare surcharge to bill

By Stella Inger. CREATED Feb 27, 2014

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV)-- You could end up footing the bill for Obamacare in a very unexpected place. A restaurant!

Several restaurants in a Florida chain are tacking on an affordable care act surcharge to tabs.

It's only one percent, but signs on the door and tables alert customers to the fee. It's also listed separately on the bill.
    
The Gator group says-- they need the extra revenue to pay for the health care compliance costs.
Gator's Dockside has even hired a consulting firm to make sure it's complying with the affordable care act.

I'm Stella Inger. I hope you'll join Guy Atchley and me tonight at 5, 6, and 10. And remember, you can join the conversation at kgun9.com, Facebook and Twitter.

Have a great day!
