Small employers were presented with a holiday gift – the opportunity to reimburse their employees for premiums paid for insurance purchased in the individual market. This practice had been prohibited under the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”). The new law, passed as part of the 21st Century Cures Act, allows small employers to adopt qualifying reimbursement programs effective as early as January 1, 2017. Please read this article to determine whether this new opportunity is right for your organization.
