Instead of offering a one-size-fits-all group plan, employers can provide tax-free funding for all — or specific segments of their employees — to purchase health insurance that best meets their particular needs.
A new option for employers
Prior to recent government guidance, employers were obligated under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to sponsor a traditional group health plan or face penalties. In 2020, ICHRAs were introduced as an option to help employers meet their ACA obligations.
By offering an ICHRA you can:
- Eliminate claim risk and cost unpredictability
- Reduce the administrative burden of designing and managing a group health plan
- Empower employees to select from a wide array of portable ACA-governed individual health plans
- Meet your ACA employer mandate responsibilities
