NASE Asks For HRA Reprieve for 2015

The NASE along with the Council for Affordable Health Coverage, National Association for Home Builders, and the National Federation of Independent Business, asked congressional leaders to consider including language championed by Congressman Blackburn (R-TN) that would "prohibit the application of certain health insurance market requirements (no lifetime or annual limits and coverage of preventive health services) for Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs) and similar accounts used by a small employer in 2015."

The NASE hopes that this "stop gap" measure could be included in upcoming legislation that would fund the federal government and allow for the NASE and other partners to fully repeal the Departments of Treasury, Health and Human Services, and Labor's Technical Release No. 2013-03 that significantly restricted the use of health reimbursement arrangements by small employers.
