Lowered their health risks: CDHP customers lowered their risk of developing or worsening a chronic condition. Reduced total medical costs: CDHP medical cost trend was 16 percent lower than traditional plans during the first year. Were more engaged in health improvement: Through proper plan design plan and the use of incentives, CDHP customers were more likely to have completed a health risk assessment and participated in their health coaching program than those enrolled in a traditional plan.

Preventive health care–including annual physical exams, screenings, and immunizations–is essential to good health. The Affordable Care Act (health care reform) attempts to address this problem by requiring all new group and individual health insurance plans as of September 23, 2010 to pay 100% of the costs for preventive care services ranked A and B by the U.S. If your health plan qualifies, you can take advantage of a wide range of preventive care services to help you avoid illness and improve your health–at no cost to you, so long as you receive these services from a health care provider within your health plan’s network of doctors and hospitals. You won’t have to pay a copayment at the office visit, and not a penny toward coinsurance or your deductible. Note: Services marked with an asterisk (*) must be covered with no cost–sharing in plan years starting on or after August 1, 2012.
It’s important to keep in mind that while the health plan cannot charge you a copayment, deductible, or coinsurance when the primary purpose of the office visit is the recommended preventive care service and the service is NOT billed separately from the office visit, you may be required to share some of the costs if the preventive service is not the primary purpose of the office visit.

Yet many Americans don’t receive the regular preventive care they need, despite the fact that chronic diseases, which are responsible for 7 of 10 deaths among Americans each year and account for 75% of the country’s health care spending–are often preventable. And remember, preventive services are covered at 100% only when received from health care providers within the health plan’s network. The insurer said the approach should cut down on some of the priciest forms of medical care, emergency room visits and hospital admissions.

SeeChange Health Insurance provides value-based benefit plans to fully insured employer groups in California and is the first to bring this unique approach to small and midsize companies. In this guidance, the IRS confirms that employers filing fewer than 250 W-2s are not required to report the value of health benefits. Employers may require that employees pass biometric screenings to receive discounts on their health insurance premiums. More employers may use the services of a health care advisor to teach employees how to make better treatment choices, find quality providers and make better use of their employers’ health management programs, thereby reducing health care costs. Employers filing fewer than 250 Forms W-2 for the preceding calendar year are not required to report the aggregate cost of coverage. The Notice clarifies that the standard for determining whether the cost of coverage under a dental plan or vision plan is included in the aggregate cost is the same standard for determining whether such coverage is an excepted benefit under HIPAA.
The reporting requirement does not apply to the cost of coverage includible in income under Section 105(h) of the Internal Revenue Code, or payments or reimbursements of health insurance premiums for a 2% shareholder-employee of an S corporation that is required to include the premium payments in gross income. An employer that does not charge a premium for an EAP, wellness program or on-site medical clinic to COBRA-qualifying beneficiaries is not required to include the cost of such coverage in the aggregate reportable cost.
The aggregate reportable cost for a calendar year reported on a Form W-2 may be based on the information available to the employer as of December 31 of the calendar year, without regard to any election or notification made or provided in a subsequent calendar year that has a retroactive effect on a previous year’s coverage. The Notice provides employers with various options for reporting the aggregate reportable cost for a payroll period that spans two taxable years. Employers are required to include the cost of coverage in the aggregate reportable cost on Form W-2 if the employer makes any contribution to the cost of coverage that is excluded from the employee’s income, or if the employee purchases a policy on a pre-tax basis under a cafeteria plan.
The aggregate reportable cost is not required to be reported on a Form W-2 furnished by a third-party sick pay provider.

Those who don’t meet the necessary biometric levels would have to enroll in a wellness program and after achieving a healthy body mass index and other biometric numbers, would then be eligible for the discounts. Thus, certain stand-alone dental and vision plans may be exempt from the reporting requirement. For arrangements that are not subject to any federal continuation coverage requirements (such as church plans), the employer is not required to include the cost of such coverage on the Form W-2.
However, if the employer provides the opportunity for employees to purchase an independent, non-coordinated fixed indemnity policy and the employee pays the full amount of the premium with after-tax dollars, the cost of coverage provided under that policy is not required to be reported on Form W-2. However, a Form W-2 furnished by the employer to an employee must include the aggregate reportable cost, regardless of whether that Form W-2 includes sick pay, or whether a third-party sick pay provider isfurnishing a separate Form W-2 to report sick pay.
