Here’s a reminder from OMA Connections Partner, One Source Advisors: Fees to fund the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) are due to the IRS no later than July 31, 2017 from employers who sponsor certain self-insured health plans, including health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs) that are not treated as excepted benefits.
Employers that sponsor certain self-insured health plans must report and pay the required PCORI fees via IRS Form 720, Quarterly Federal Excise Tax Return. For plan years ending between January 1, 2016 and September 30, 2016, the fee for an employer sponsoring an applicable self-insured plan is $2.17 multiplied by the average number of lives covered under the plan. For plan years ending between October 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016, the fee is $2.26 multiplied by the average number of lives covered under the plan.
If you have questions about this or any other employee health care plan question, please contact Cheri Gillfillan at One Source Advisors. 6/1/2017
