PCORI Fee

Posted July 10th, 2013 in Employers, Producers

The initial Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) fee for plan years ending after September 30, 2012 will be payable by July 31, 2013. Employers are required to pay this fee on plans that are considered to be self-insured.

Insurance companies will pay the PCORI fee on fully insured plans. However, the updated Form 720 in which the fees are paid gives the impression that employers are also responsible for this fee on fully insured plans.

Recent guidance helped clarify some of the confusion about Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) fees applicable to Health Reimbursement
Arrangements (HRAs) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs). It was originally thought that the fee would be applicable to all covered lives including spouses and dependents. That is no longer the case in some instances.
