A brand-new federal law, the 21st Century Cures Act, now allows small employers without group health plans to offer their employees a special kind of stand-alone health reimbursement arrangement (HRA) to help pay for medical care expensesincluding individual Marketplace coverage. Qualifying employers can set up these arrangements immediately for the 2017 plan year. Well give you the details on which employers qualify, eligibility rules for employees, maximum benefit amounts, notice requirements, and more! And well highlight other strategies for small employers (or your small-employer clients) looking to help employees pay for health coverage.
By the end of this webinar, you should be able to: identify which employers may offer qualified small-employer HRAs (QSEHRAs); describe the employee-eligibility rules applicable to QSEHRAs, explain the benefit limits applicable to QSEHRAs; prepare an employee communication that satisfies the QSEHRA notice requirements; and describe the general compliance requirements and income tax consequences associated with offering QSEHRAs.
