Podcast Episode 127: Benefits Aspects of the Inflation Reduction Act
September 13, 2022
In this episode, Chase Cannon and Suzanne Spradley discuss the benefits provisions of the recently-enacted Inflation Reduction Act. Chase walks through the extension of premium tax credit expansions through 2025, and the impact on employers with respect to the employer mandate penalties. Next, Chase and Suzanne discuss Medicare prescription drug cost reductions and a formalization of prior IRS guidance that allows HDHP coverage of insulin in certain circumstances without impacting HSA eligibility. The two close the podcast by outlining the new law’s increased funding of the IRS and how that might impact compliance enforcement on employer group health plans.
Periodically, NFP's legal experts make the subject of compliance personal for a wide audience. By breaking down the daunting details of emerging policies and bridging the gap between legislation and what it means for the listener, Chase Cannon and Suzanne Spradley make compliance issues relatable and relevant.
