White Paper / Employee Benefits
Expats, Inpats and the ACA

One of the areas in the employee benefits world where agency guidance has been sorely needed is the application of federal tax and ERISA rules, particularly rules added by the Affordable Care Act (ACA), to health insurance plans that cover foreign-bound US employees (expatriates). The good news is that the agencies responsible for enforcing the ACA have issued transition relief from many of the ACA requirements. The even better news is that Congress enacted a law in the waning hours of 2014 to help clarify these issues. The bad news is there are many unresolved, arcane issues that preceded the new law. For now, the agencies have indicated that reasonable good faith reliance applies for compliance purposes with the new law.

In this white paper by Director of Compliance Services Mark Holloway, you’ll learn how the decades-old ERISA rules can apply to expatriate programs, the problems created by the passage of the ACA and how the new law will apply going forward.
