Legislative Position - April 23, 2014
Senators Richard Burr (R-NC), Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Tom Coburn (R-OK) have introduced an outline of a bill called the Patient Choice, Affordability, Responsibility, and Empowerment Act, or the Patient CARE Act. Like PPACA, this legislation would tax employer-sponsored medical plans that provide benefits that the federal government deems as "too rich". We believe:
- The income tax exclusion for employer-sponsored medical plans should be preserved.
- Employers should not be taxed for offering competitive benefits. And,
- Employees should not be taxed for participating in competitive benefit plans.
Furthermore, we believe the market and not the government should determine what is competitive for copayments, deductibles and coinsurance levels. Accordingly, we have sent a letter (click here to view letter) to Senator Burr expressing our concerns with his Patient CARE Act.
