Helping Employees Understand Health Care Premium Subsidies

October 4, 2013 ( – The health marketplaces are starting to accept applications, and, with that, interest in the premium subsidy process is increasing.

Employers may want to help their employees understand the premium subsidy eligibility requirements and regulations, particularly if they are not offering coverage.

Linda Rowings, chief compliance officer for United Benefit Advisors (UBA), has written a blog that breaks down these requirements and the tax consequences for people who get subsidy payments greater than what they are allowed. In addition, UBA offers an FAQ document to address these issues and more.

The blog and a link to request a copy of the FAQ document is here.
