New Guidance and Relief for Employer Payment of Individual Health Insurance Premiums

Standard

One of the questions we at Vista Benefits are asked almost daily is the question on how an employer can help their employees with their individual insurance premiums. This type of arrangement, or ‘employer payment plandoes not comply with the requirements of the Affordable Care Act and can result in penalties to an employer of $100 per employee per day.

The good news for now is that the IRS has offered a transitional period through June 30, 2015 in which they have stated that no penalties will be enforced for this type of arrangement. http://bit.ly/1CV3NBE

If you find yourself or your business in this situation, you should rectify this now to avoid expensive financial penalties.

Please call today and I can review the options available to you that do comply with the Affordable Care Act and help you avoid potential penalties and IRS audits.

Right now I’m helping a small 7 employee trucking company in Fort Atkinson save big on their premiums, and to boot they will qualify for a tax credit for offering coverage to their employees.

I’m also helping individuals in Milwaukee, Green Bay, Madison choose the health insurance plans and carriers that fit their personal situations.

I’ve learned a lot about the SHOP Marketplace enrollment process over the last 2 weeks, and the one thing that sticks out is that the process is not intuitive.

Please let me know if I can save you the headaches of dealing with it for the first time on your own!
