Federal Law eAlert

The deductible cap for small group health plans under the Affordable Care Act has been permanently removed. Originally, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) had a provision that capped the deductible for individual and small group health plans at $2,000 for individuals and $4,000 for families. Last year, when it became evident that it would be difficult for many plans to comply with that requirement, the Health and Human Services Department issued a waiver for 2014. Now, through a bipartisan effort, that provision has been eliminated entirely in an effort to help issuers to design plans that work well for small business owners. It will also allow small businesses to continue the trend towards High-Deductible Health Plans coupled with Health Savings Accounts. However, there are many other plan design requirements delineated in the ACA that still apply to small employers, including the limit on out-of-pocket maximums for essential health benefits.

That’s why we prefer to leave all that burden on Simplifi Payroll & HR while we concentrate on making great food! Joe Pintimalli has been instrumental in keeping our payroll compliant and our costs low. We highly recommend Simplifi Payroll & HR.

"We had a situation last year where we forgot to pay a key employee his bonus. Simplifi Payroll and HR went out of their way to make sure the employee got his money less than a few hours later. You just can't get that kind of dedication anywhere else. They made me a customer for life that day."
