Description: The ICHRA is an evolution of the standard HRA. What makes an ICHRA unique is that it can reimburse employees tax-free for individual health insurance premiums. This means employers may choose to forgo offering a traditional group health plan to employees. Instead, employees offered and accepting an ICHRA buy their own individual health insurance plan and receive tax-free premium reimbursement for some or all the cost. This plan type puts employers in the driver’s seat. They design their plan, determine the participants, and establish the limits. 

This three-hour course provides benefits and insurance professionals the training to better advise employers and achieve a higher comprehension level of the ICHRA market. Join leading experts Mark Mixer and Annette Bechtold, who will provide a foundational framework and insight as to where ICHRAs are best utilized.

Course instruction will cover: 

  • Traditional Uses of HRAs and Reasons for Introduction of ICHRAs
  • Federal Regulations
  • Interaction with Affordable Care Act – Affordability and Funding
  • The Individual Market
