Benefits Bulletin is a quarterly newsletter that covers hot benefit topics in depth. This issue includes information about pay or play enforcement, 2019 benefit plan limits, repeal and replace efforts, and adjusted PCORI fee amounts. Note: This document has been updated to reflect the Dec. 14 federal court ruling in the Texas v. United States lawsuit.
On Nov. 5, 2018, the IRS published Notice 2018-85, which provides the adjusted PCORI fee amount for plan years ending on or after Oct. 1, 2018, and before Oct. 1, 2019 (that is, 2018 for calendar year plans). As this ACA Compliance Bulletin notes, for plan years ending on or after Oct. 1, 2018, and before Oct. 1, 2019, the PCORI fee amount is $2.45 multiplied by the average number of lives covered under the plan.
