Reminder: Group Health Plans’ PCORI Fees Due By July 31

As a reminder, Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (“PCORI”) fees are due for most group health plans by July 31, 2014. Under Health Care Reform, most group health plans will be required to annually pay PCORI fees through 2019. 

PCORI fees were first due by sponsors of self-insured group health plans and insurers last July for plan and policy years that ended on or after October 1, 2012. This year’s PCORI fees will be calculated for plan and policy years that ended on or after October 1, 2013.

Employers that sponsor self-insured group health plans should report and pay PCORI fees using IRS Form 720, Quarterly Federal Excise Tax Return. For more information about which plans are responsible for paying PCORI fees and how to calculate the fee, please see our earlier publication here.

If you need help amending your plan, calculating the number of covered lives or addressing any other issues pertaining to PCORI fees or Health Care Reform, please contact April Goff (616.752.2154 or, Norbert  Kugele (616.752.2186 or, or any other member of the Warner Norcross & Judd Employee Benefits Group.
