Cadillac Tax on Really Nice Employer Health Plans

The Cadillac Tax, set to begin in 2018 – 2020 Word & Brown 8.20.2019CA Health Line 12.21.2015 as part of the ACA, is a 40% tax on benefits over certain thresholds. HRAs, HSAs, Major Medical coverage and other items are included in the coverage that counts towards this tax.  The tax will hit insurance and related perks valued at more than $10,200 for singles and $27,500 for families. So for family benefits worth $30,000, the tax would apply to the $2,500 that’s above the limit.  The administration has long argued it is a modest step to get health care costs under control. It “will affect only a small portion of the very highest-cost health plans — a total of 3 percent of premiums in 2013,”  About one-third of employers will be hit by the tax in 2018 if they do nothing to change their plans   4.7.2015 Word & Brown from Politico
