Department of Labor Issues Final Rule to Allow Associations and PEOs to Sponsor Retirement Plans

REIT
Final rule defines a PEO as an employer under ERISA and clarifies rules for PEOs to offer retirement benefits

On July 29, 2019, the Department of Labor (the “Department”) issued a final rule to facilitate and expand the availability of multiple employer defined contribution plans (“MEPs”). The final rule provides clarity regarding the types of “bona fide” groups or associations of employers as well as professional employer organizations (“PEOs”) that are permitted to sponsor retirement plans.

NAPEO supports the rule, as it is another step in in formalizing the legal framework for PEOs to provide benefits for their client’s shared employees. This action, along with the passage of the Small Business Efficiency Act contained in the Tax Increase Prevention Act (H.R. 5771, Public Law 113‐295) which created the voluntary IRS PEO Certification Program, demonstrates the federal government’s recognition of the PEO industry and the important role it plays in supporting our nation’s small businesses.

With respect to PEOs, the final rule does two things. First, it states that a “bona fide” PEO is capable of establishing a MEP. The rule then creates a safe harbor criteria for determining whether a PEO that sponsors a MEP is performing essential employment functions.

Cadillac Tax and Other Key ACA Taxes Repealed

OVERVIEW
On Dec. 20, 2019, President Trump signed into law a spending bill that prevents a government shutdown and repeals the following three taxes and fees under the Affordable Care Act (ACA):

    • The Cadillac tax on high-cost group health coverage,
      beginning in 2020;
    • The medical devices excise tax, beginning in 2020; and
    • The health insurance providers fee, beginning in 2021.
      The law also extends PCORI fees to fiscal years 2020-2029.

Cadillac Tax
The ACA imposes a 40 percent excise tax on high-cost group health coverage, also known as the “Cadillac tax.” This provision taxes the amount, if any, by which the monthly cost of an employee’s applicable employer-sponsored health coverage exceeds the annual limitation (called the employee’s excess benefit). The tax
amount for each employee’s coverage will be calculated by the employer and paid by the coverage provider.

Although originally intended to take effect in 2013, the Cadillac tax was immediately delayed until 2018 following the ACA’s enactment. A federal budget bill enacted for 2016 further delayed implementation of this tax until 2020, and also:

  • Removed a provision prohibiting the Cadillac tax from being
    deducted as a business expense; and
  • Required a study to be conducted on the age and gender
    adjustment to the annual limit.

Then, a 2018 continuing spending resolution delayed implementation of
the Cadillac tax for an additional two years, until 2022.
There was some indication that these delays would eventually lead to an eventual repeal of the Cadillac tax provision altogether. The Cadillac tax has been a largely unpopular provision since its enactment, and a number of bills have been introduced into Congress to repeal this tax over the past several years.

The 2019 continuing spending resolution fully repeals the Cadillac tax, beginning with the 2020 taxable year.

Health Insurance Providers Fee
Beginning in 2014, the ACA imposed an annual, nondeductible fee on the health insurance sector, allocated across the industry according to market share. This health insurance providers fee, which is treated as an excise tax, is required to be paid by Sept. 30 of each calendar year. The first fees were due Sept. 30, 2014.
The 2016 federal budget suspended collection of the health insurance providers fee for the 2017 calendar year. Thus, health insurance issuers were not required to pay these fees for 2017. However, this moratorium expired at the end of 2017. A 2019 continuing resolution provided an additional one-year moratorium on the health insurance providers fee for the 2019 calendar year, although the fee continued to apply for the 2018 calendar year.

The 2019 continuing spending resolution fully repeals the health insurance providers fee, beginning with the 2021 calendar year. Employers are not directly subject to the health insurance providers fee. However, in many cases, providers of insured plans have been passing the cost of the fee on to the employers sponsoring the coverage. As a result, this repeal may result in significant savings for some employers on their health
insurance rates.

Medical Devices Excise Tax
The ACA also imposes a 2.3 percent excise tax on the sales price of certain medical devices, effective beginning in 2013. Generally, the manufacturer or importer of a taxable medical device is responsible for reporting and paying this tax to the IRS. The 2016 federal budget suspended collection of the medical devices tax for two
years, in 2016 and 2017. As a result, this tax did not apply to sales made between Jan. 1, 2016, and Dec. 31, 2017. A 2018 continuing resolution extended this moratorium for an additional two years, through the 2019 calendar year. The moratorium is set to expire beginning in 2020.

The 2019 continuing spending resolution fully repeals the medical devices tax, beginning in 2020. Therefore, as a result of both moratoriums and the repeal, the medical devices tax does not apply to any sales made after Jan. 1, 2016.

PCORI Fees
The ACA created the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to help patients, clinicians, payers and the public make informed health decisions by advancing comparative effectiveness research. The Institute’s research is funded, in part, by fees paid by health insurance issuers and sponsors of self-insured
health plans. Under the ACA, the PCORI fees were scheduled to apply to policy or plan years ending on or after Oct. 1, 2012, and before Oct. 1, 2019.

The 2019 continuing spending resolution reinstates PCORI fees for the 2020-2029 fiscal years. As a result, specified health insurance policies and applicable self-insured health plans must continue to pay these fees through 2029.

NAPEO19 Annual Conference & Marketplace

September 16-18, 2019

The conference planning committee continually strives to improve the content of the conference and this year will be better than ever!

From an educational point of view, there will be three tracks:

  • PEO Operations: This is new for 2019. Thanks to NAPEO’s Conference Chair Norman Paul, we have designed a new and ongoing focus to help PEOs improve operationally with instructional guidance in the areas of payroll, workflows, and overall efficiency.
  • Compliance: This topic is not only important to PEO customers, but to the liability of PEOs. The landscape and requirements are ever-changing and NAPEO’s staff and committees are staying on top of this to make your lives easier and reduce liability. This track will keep you abreast of the latest changes in the law and how best to navigate them.
  • Growth: Now is a great time to be in the PEO industry. The industry is growing and the market is embracing PEOs and outsourcing HR functions. NAPEO has been hard at work creating tools for our members to increase awareness and drive home the value of PEOs. In addition, your industry colleagues will be sharing their best practices about what works for them to grow their PEO’s.

Look forward to seeing everyone there! Check out the below link for more details on this years Conference.

All Hands on Deck in Tallahassee

From our friends at the Florida Association of Professional Employer Organizations (“FAPEO”).    It could not be said in a more powerful manner the need to continue advocacy for the PEO industry as we continue to grow and be an even more powerful piece of supporting workers’ compensation for the employees of the State of Florida.  I look forward to seeing you there — This will take place on Feb 19-20 2018.

Subject: Lies and Insults in the Lawmaking Process

 

You’ve had a string of successful years in the PEO industry. Market share has increased and payrolls grown.

 

This makes our enemies angry.

 

Some people outside of the PEO industry are on the losing side of your growth. When you sign-up a new client that has never worked with a PEO before, that means they are canceling other relationships.

 

Rather than make their offering more competitive, many of those canceled provider complain to lawmakers. They accuse your company of cheating the system, fraud, and failing to pay for injuries. Sure, in the process they do everything they accuse you of, but the reality is lawmakers don’t know that.

 

Lawmakers hear a lot of negative misinformation from people outside the PEO industry.

 

That’s why it’s important for you to tell the other side of the story. To explain to your lawmakers exactly how you help worksite employees get better benefits, help your clients focus on growing their business and how you help government improve compliance and collect more taxes.

 

On February 13-14, we’ll host the Florida PEO CEO Legislative Summit. This event is free, I attached a brochure with more details.  Just RSVP so we can save you a seat.  http://www.fapeo.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/2017-PEO-Legislative-Summit.pdf

Here is the hotel information:

There is block of rooms at the Doubletree Hotel located at 101 S. Adams Street in Tallahassee, FL. FAPEO has arranged a special rate of $169.00 per night for this event. You can make your reservation for the night of February 13th using this link: http://bit.ly/2CGrkwo or by calling 1-877-800-2652 and mention that you are with FAPEO.

This event will give you insights into workers’ compensation reform efforts, insider information on how the reshuffle created by lawmakers moving into the Trump administration will impact the lawmaking process and a time to weigh in on issues impacting the PEO industry.

 

Plus, we’ll use the opportunity of having you in Tallahassee to set up meetings for you with your local lawmakers to educate them on how the decisions they make impact your PEO and the clients and co-employees you serve.

 

Our lawmakers will make decisions on hundreds of issues over the next few weeks. Few lawmakers understand what you do and yet they hear a lot of nonsense from those who want to make your PEO less competitive. While we work hard to educate each lawmaker about the PEO industry, there’s nothing as powerful as hearing directly from a company within his or her community.

 

A briefing from you about your company is a lot more powerful than David Daniel or I giving legislators a presentation about the PEO industry in theory.

 

Make your plans now for February 19-20. I attached a brochure with additional details.  Just send Suzanne or me an email to RSVP.

 

 

Workers’ Comp Drug Spend Continues to Drop, According to CompPharma’s 14th Annual Survey of Prescription Drug Management

MAGGIE VALLEY, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CompPharma’s 14th Annual Survey of Prescription Drug Management in Workers’ Compensation showed an average 11 percent reduction in payers’ pharmacy spend, driven by a 13.3 percent reduction in opioid cost. The survey analyzed the 2016 pharmacy cost data of 23 workers’ compensation insurance carriers, third-party administrators, self-insured employers, and state funds.

Working with their pharmacy benefit managers, payers cut one of every six dollars in opioid spend, which the report called a “truly remarkable result.” In contrast, across all payer types, pain medication use declined by a scant 1 percent (Quintiles IMS).

“Clearly the efforts of workers’ comp regulators, payers, desk-level staff, PBMs and prescribers have paid off,” said Joseph Paduda, president of CompPharma, LLC. “While we have much left to do, this represents a dramatic improvement in the lives of thousands of patients.”

Payers are far from complacent, with all respondents expressing grave concerns about the risk of opioid addiction or dependency. Most are continuing to refine and improve programs to help patients address pain while minimizing use of opioids, relying on physician and/or pharmacist review of claims, early identification of potentially risky prescribing, and increased use of drug testing.

In contrast, compound drug utilization and spend has dropped dramatically and is no longer of great concern to payers.

Internal Revenue Service Posts List of PEO Small Business Efficiency Act Participants

Unfortunately for the PEO industry, there have been cases in the past of payroll tax money not making its proper way to the Internal Revenue Service from a PEO, leaving small employers being forced to repay SUTA and FUTA.  A solution to allow PEO’s to be accredited/certified/recognized by the IRS was sought by NAPEO to help the credibility of the industry and ensure proper payments of tax for American business.

As background and straight off the NAPEO website…

www.napeo.org

On December 19, 2014, President Obama signed the Tax Increase Prevention Act of 2014. Included in this legislation was the Small Business Efficiency Act (SBEA), which created a voluntary IRS certification program for professional employer organizations. It was previously approved by the House of Representatives as a provision in the ABLE Act to off-set the costs associated with that proposal, then incorporated into the Tax Increase Prevention Act of 2014 and passed by the Senate.

IRS PEO certification is important because it:

  • Confirms the certified PEO (CPEO) can pay federal employment taxes under its EIN.
  • Protects customers through the CPEO’s sole liability on wages paid to WSEs by CPEO.
  • Provides certainty with respect to when a wage base restart is not necessary for new customers.
  • Confirms the CPEO’s FUTA credit for all SUTA paid by CPEO or customer.
  • Offers clear guidance for the CPEO and the customer on pass-through of tax credits and employment tax exclusions.
  • Gives increased comfort for potential client with use of an IRS-certified PEO.
  • Lends credibility to PEO business model, especially with investor community and federal regulators.

—–

This is a huge win for the industry in its quest for more market share against the traditional deployment of employment related functions and I believe will become a huge competitive advantage for the current and future participants of this PEO certification.

The initial list is below…Kudos to NAPEO and the 30 or so PEO control groups to take the lead on this initiative.  For those looking to certify, Thom Stohler and Farrah Fielder at NAPEO are standing by to help —  PRH

Engage PEO Hits INC 500/5000

It is with great pride that I announce that our friends at Engage have hit the INC 500/5000 for 2016!  Hitting the 5000 is a big enough deal but in the top 500 growth companies in the United States is a very special accomplishment.  Congratulations Jay, Midge and the rest of the Engage team!

“Inc. ranked Engage as the 127th fastest-growing private company in the country. The report notes that Engage’s three-year revenue growth exceeded 2,700 percent. Engage ranked as the fastest growing professional employment organization, second among all human resource companies, and 12th of all companies in Florida.”

Having started operations less then five years ago, Engage has grown its coemployee base to almost 25,000 employees at present.  With a focus on healthcare and human resources, the firm’s average client size is arguably almost triple the industry norm at over 60 employees.  With recent hirings of industry stalwarts Steve Scott and Craig Hill, it is my opinion that this is just the opening chapter for Engage.

Congratulations !
