Your Guide to Health Care Reform Taxes and Fees

_From the health care reform experts at Accelerated Benefits

The health care reform law, known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), makes significant changes to the U.S. health care system, including new coverage requirements, patient protections and cost limitations. These changes affect health care providers, government programs, health insurance issuers, employers and plan sponsors, and individuals.

In order to fund many of these changes, the ACA imposes several new taxes and fees—many of which directly impact health plans and health plan sponsors. The following charts provide an overview of the ACA’s new tax and fee provisions that affect health plans.

The ACA also establishes several other taxes that do not affect health plans, including the Indoor Tanning Services Tax and the Medical Devices Excise Tax.


Please contact Accelerated Benefits for more information on these new taxes and fees.
