IRS Publishes Proposed Rules on Affordability Safe Harbors and Nondiscrimination for ICHRAs
By Karen Hsu, Director of Compliance at United Benefit Advisors

Oct 22, 2019 8:32:00 AM

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) published proposed rules clarifying how the employer shared responsibility provisions and Section 105(h) nondiscrimination rules apply to health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs) and other account-based group health plans that are integrated with individual health insurance coverage or Medicare.

Public comments on the IRS’ proposed rules are due by December 30, 2019. Because employers may want to offer individual coverage HRAs beginning on January 1, 2020, before the IRS publishes its final regulations, the IRS provides a time period within which employers may rely on the proposed regulations.
