Hodgepodge of Health Reform Guidance

In recent guidance, federal authorities indicated they may exempt, from the "transitional reinsurance fee" on health plans, self-funded plans that are self-administered. Good news also: plans that do owe the fee for 2014 will be able to pay it in two installments. Federal regulators also issued a limited exception from the individual mandate for those purchasing coverage through a public health insurance exchange before the end of the initial open enrollment period.

In Massachusetts, the Commonwealth has indicated that, starting next year, it won't enforce a requirement that Massachusetts employers offer their employees a Tax Code Section 125 plan (i.e., a cafeteria plan) that includes the option to purchase individual insurance coverage using pretax amounts.

Get this information – and what it all means to your business – in the latest Health Reform Advisory Practice Alert from Lockton’s Ed Fensholt, J.D. and Mark Holloway, J.D.
