NASE Requests Action on H.R. 2911 by House Ways and Means Committee

On April 12, 2016, nearly a 100 organizations and businesses sent a letter to the House Ways and Means Committee requesting immediate consideration of H.R. 2911, the Small Business Healthcare Relief Act.

For over three years the NASE and other organizations have been pushing for Congress to legislatively address a gross overreach by the Department of Treasury as it relates to the use and treatment of health reimbursement arrangements by small businesses.

"We strongly support the Small Business Healthcare Relief Act (H.R. 2911), which currently has 77 bipartisan cosponsors, including 28 House Ways & Means Committee members. This critical legislation would allow small businesses with fewer than 50 employees to offer employer payment plans and HRAs to employees for the payment of premiums or qualified medical expenses associated with insurance coverage without facing outrageous fines."
