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.

Holidays and FMLA Leave
With the holiday season here and the announcement of new Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) regulations, some employers may find themselves wondering if those days off count towards the time used against FMLA leave entitlement. The answer is that it depends on the type of FMLA leave the employee is taking. FMLA leave may be taken in periods of whole weeks, single days, hours, and in some cases, even less than an hour. When a holiday falls during a week in which an employee is taking the full week of FMLA leave, the entire week is counted as FMLA leave. However, when a holiday falls during a week when an employee is taking less than the full week of FMLA leave, the holiday is not counted as FMLA leave, unless the employee was scheduled and expected to work on the holiday and used FMLA leave for that day. Members of The Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce have access to the My Benefit Advisor program as a solution for employee benefits. MBA experts assist our members in managing their employee benefits and health insurance options as well answering important compliance questions.
