List Of Companies Posting Charges Related To Health-Care Law
Starting in 2013, companies that provide prescription-drug benefits for retirees under Medicare can no longer deduct this subsidy from their taxes, due to the federal health-care overhaul signed into law on March 23.
Since companies had created an asset based on these expected deductions, they will now need to take a charge to reflect the fall in the asset's value. The following companies have announced the amount of their health-care-related charges:

AT&T Inc. (T) -- $1 billion in 1Q
3M Co. (MMM) -- $85 million to $90 million in 1Q
