Compliance Corner Webinar on HRA Final Rule

Date | Time

Thursday, July 18, 2019
1:00PM – 2:00PM


The Trump Administration released its final rule last month on the expansion of Health Reimbursement Arrangements that established new individual-coverage HRAs and excepted-benefit HRAs. Join us on Thursday, July 18 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern for NAHU’s member-exclusive Compliance Corner webinar reviewing the nearly-500-page regulation and key compliance considerations for employers and brokers to keep in mind. NAHU Compliance Corner members Joan Fusco and Annette Bechtold will examine the rules on how employers can offer an HRA to be used for the purpose of purchasing individual health coverage, and how employers can provide HRAs to reimburse certain qualified medical expenses, including premiums for short-term plans.

The session will specifically review the following considerations:

  • Who may offer
  • Integration with Individual Coverage or Medicare (ICHRAs)
  • Excepted Benefit HRAs
  • ERISA safe harbor
  • Allowable classes
  • Notice requirements
  • Substantiation requirements
  • Who is subject to the new “Minimum Class” rule
  • Pre-tax rule
  • Impact on the Employer Shared Responsibility “mandate”
  • How does affordability weigh in with a premium tax credit
  • is COBRA applicable
  • landmines and legal challenges

The session is limited to 1,000 participants; if you can't make it or it fills up, the session will be recorded and the slides and webinar recording will be posted online.
