As in previous years, our local health insurance carriers will pay the PCORI fee on behalf of fully-insured group health plans. Some of our clients see the additional fees on their own statements, which means the additional fees are being passed on to them.

According to IRS notice 2014-56, sponsors of self-insured group health plans, including some HRAs and health FSAs, must complete the filing process themselves using IRS Form 720.

The PCORI fees are set to continue until 2019. For more information, visit the FAQ section of the IRS website.
