Feds Announce New HRA Options - A new Proposed Rule, Health Reimbursement Arrangements and other Account Based Group Health Plans was announced yesterday by the Department of Labor, Treasury and Health and Human Services. The proposed regulation, which will be effective for plan years beginning on or after January 1, 2020, makes significant changes to the rules currently applicable to HRAs. It is scheduled to be published in the Federal Register on October 29th followed by a 60-day comment period. Highlights are below:

Premium Reimbursement HRA
Employers of any size may establish an HRA that reimburses an employee’s premium for major medical insurance purchased in the individual market (including the Exchange) provided that certain requirements are met. Participants will be permitted to pay the premium difference with pre-tax salary reductions via a Section 125 plan.

“Stand Alone” HRA
Employers who offer group health insurance will be permitted to offer an HRA to reimburse certain excepted benefits (e.g., dental insurance premiums and premiums for short-term health plans) up to an annual maximum benefit of $1,800. As with all HRAs, a limited or unlimited carryover provision may be included. The new rule dovetails perfectly with GDI’s existing HRA services. We are excited to enter this next phase of consumer-directed health care with our clients and broker partners. Updates will be announced as they occur.
