The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requires that fully-insured plans which lose grandfathered status comply with the requirements of section 105(h)(2) of the Internal Revenue Code. The 105(h) rules prohibit health plans from discriminating in favor of highly compensated individuals. These rules already apply to self-funded plans, but will now also apply to fully-insured plans, which have lost grandfathered status, effective on the first plan year beginning after September 23, 2010.

The penalty applicable to an employer who sponsors a fully-insured plan which violates the 105(h) rules is severe. The employer would be liable for an excise tax of up to $100 per day per employee “discriminated against.” This session will help employers understand the rules and what they need to do to make sure their benefits, eligibility, and contribution structure are in compliance.
