Medicare Enrolled Employees & HSA Contributions
When an employee enrolls in Medicare coverage, they are no longer eligible to contribute to their Health Savings Account (HSA). The allowed annual contribution is pro-rated based on when the employee enrolled in Medicare. For example, if Medicare coverage was acquired in July, the employee is only allowed to contribute one-half (6 of 12 months) of the allowed maximum. Employees are only allowed to contribute to HSAs when meeting all four eligibility criteria: 1) Enrolled in a Qualifying High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) 2) Does Not Have Any Disqualifying non-HDHP Coverage 3) Not Enrolled in Medicare 4) Cannot be Claimed as Another Taxpayers Dependent Members of the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce have access to the My Benefit Advisor (MBA) program for employee benefits and their experts can help you with any questions you may have about HSAs, Medicare, or your employee benefit offering as a whole.

The New Tax Reform Bill: Impact on Health Insurance
The New Tax Reform Bill: Impact on Health Insurance At the end of 2017, Congress passed a Tax Reform Bill that includes a few employer-provided health and welfare-related provisions. Below is a brief summary of some important changes taking place as a result of the new bill. " Individual Mandate Penalty - $0 Starting in 2019 As a reminder, the Individual Mandate is the part of the Affordable Care Act that institutes a penalty on individuals that do not maintain health coverage during the year. " Medical Expense Deduction The law expands the medical expense deduction for 2017 and 2018 for qualified expenses exceeding 7.5% of adjusted gross income. " Employer Tax Credit for FMLA Leave For 2018 and 2019 only, the law creates a tax credit for employers that pay employees while on FMLA leave. Vacation leave, personal leave, or other medical or sick leave do not count for this purpose. The credit is generally 12.5% of the amount of wages paid to qualifying employees. Please note that this is not a full review of the law, but focuses solely on provisions that employers should be aware of in relation to the health and welfare benefits they provide. Members of the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce have access to the My Benefit Advisor program for employee benefits and their experts can help you with your compliance and health care reform questions. For more information about the MBA program, contact Neal Pollack at (484) 351-7426.
