Health Care Reform: Update on Taxes and Fees

Health Care Reform includes a number of taxes and fees for insurers that will be used to fund programs that help provide individuals with access to affordable, quality health care. Although many of these taxes won’t require action from employers or members, health insurance premiums may be increased to account for the fees.

Our new Taxes and Fees flyer (PDF) reflects federal and state guidance as of May 2013 and includes information on:

  • Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Fee
  • Reinsurance Contribution
  • Risk Adjustment User Fee
  • Health Insurance Provider Fee
  • Exchange User Fee

Consult your legal and financial counsel for further information and advice.
