Description:



How much exposure do you have regarding the 40% tax in 2018? Are you ready?

The Cadillac Tax—an employer excise tax on high-cost health plans—takes effect in 2018. While benefits effective in 2017 won’t be affected by the legislation, employers with high health care costs and premiums will be subject to penalty for the 2018 plan year. As a result, many of those employers will implement their mitigation strategies in the fall of 2016 for 2017 enrollment to play it safe. Join us for an online discussion on the tax impact, common strategies employers are using to address the tax and how technology supports the execution of these strategies.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Will the Cadillac Tax stay or go? An update on the Cadillac Tax and how to plan for it.
  • Are HDHPs and HSAs part of the solution? Learn how employers are deploying these solutions and what results they are seeing.
  • Will employees choose high-performance “narrow” networks when offered this option?
  • What role can decision support play in helping employees make better benefits choices?
