Benafica’s Defined Benefit Solutions: As healthcare costs continue to climb, Benafica’s platform is here to help. Benafica administers HRA defined contribution plans that allows individual health insurance and other qualified medical expenses to be reimbursed tax free. Whether an employer supports a traditional group benefit approach or a newer defined contribution model for employees, Benafica is here to help.
ICHRA & QSEHRA are the two types of HRAs that Benafica can administer.
(Individual Coverage Health Reimbursement Arrangement, pronounced “ick-rah”)
ICHRA is a game-changer for employers wanting to provide health benefits to their employees, but don’t want to be in the traditional group health insurance business.
ICHRA’s, now considered the fastest growing kind of group of health insurance, allow employers to make a per employee per month tax free contribution that employees use to be reimbursed for individual health insurance, Medicare, and other out of pocket medical expenses. It’s now a newer, more modern model of employer-sponsored health insurance.
ICHRA’s allow for a great deal design flexibility, have no caps on the employer contribution, are tax-free to the employer and employee, and are available to employers of all sizes. And they satisfy the ACA employer mandate for ACA compliance if set up correctly.
ICHRA’s were new in the marketplace in January 2020 and have seen incredible adoption year after year.
(Qualified Small Employer Health Reimbursement Arrangement, pronounced “Q-sehra”)
QSEHRA, also known as a small business HRA for employers with fewer than 50 employees is an employer-funded, tax-free health benefit used to reimburse employees for individual health insurance, Medicare and other out of pocketed qualified medical expenses.
QSEHRA’s have an annual contribution cap. For 2023, the contribution cap is $5850 for single employees and $11,800 for families.
A broader range of plans are eligible for reimbursement under QSEHRA’s, including reimbursement for coverage under a spouse’s group health insurance plan, short term medical plans, and sharing ministry plans.
QSEHRA’s began in the marketplace in 2017.
