Determining “Affordability” under the ACA

4
Jan 2016
Posted in ACA 101

For the purpose of determining “affordability” under the ACA, employer contributions that are required by the terms of a MEC-integrated HRA and that are permitted to be used by employees to pay premiums, to meet cost-sharing requirements under the MEC plan, or to pay for medical expenses not covered by the MEC plan are treated as reducing the employee’s required contribution — without regard to whether the employee in fact uses the HRA to pay his or her share of contributions under the MEC plan. Thus, the price of lowest cost, self-only coverage is reduced by the employer’s required contribution amount under the terms of the HRA.
