This section assists HR professionals in understanding the different types of health benefit plans (e.g., traditional indemnity, managed care), the benefits that may be offered (e.g., prescription drug, dental, vision), how cafeteria plans work and the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).
Under the 21st Century Cures Act, a small employer that has fewer than 50 full-time employees (including full-time equivalent employees) and that does not offer group health insurance to its active employees may provide stand-alone qualified small employer health reimbursement arrangements (QSEHRAs). An employer may use this model notice to fulfill the annual notice requirement.
