ACEC Supports Suspension of Health Insurance Tax

ACEC and a coalition of business allies have written to the House and Senate leadership, asking Congress to suspend a tax on health insurance plans offered by small firms.  

The Affordable Care Act imposed a tax on fully-insured, traditional health plans sold to individuals and small firms, which took effect in 2018.  Congress lifted the health insurance tax (HIT) for 2019.  The coalition is asking Congress to proactively defer the HIT for 2020, as premiums are already being developed.

ACEC supports full repeal of the HIT, and will work with Congress to eliminate health insurance taxes on employers of all sizes.
