The IRS has released guidance further clarifying the rules regulating qualified small employer health reimbursement arrangements (QSEHRAs). QSEHRAs—which are health reimbursement arrangements exempt from the Affordable Care Act's market reforms—may be offered by employers with fewer than 50 full-time equivalent employees that do not offer a group health plan to any of its employees to reimburse employees for medical expenses, including individual health insurance policy premiums.
The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has finalized December 15, 2017 as the date by which certain employers are required to electronically submit data from their 2016 Forms 300A to OSHA.
The IRS has announced that it will begin mailing employers letters informing them of their potential liability for a "pay or play" penalty for the 2015 calendar year in late 2017. However, before any penalty is assessed and notice and demand for payment is made, employers will have an opportunity to respond to the agency.
