Qualified Small Employer HRA

U.S. Senators Charles Grassley and Heidi Heitkamp and Congressmen Charles Boustany and Mike Thompson introduced the bipartisan legislation in the Senate and House, respectively, referred to as the Small Business Healthcare Relief Act. The legislation was then repackaged with minor changes into the 21st Century Cures Act. As a result of the September 2013 guidance issued jointly by the Departments of the Treasury, Health and Human Services, and Labor, small business owners were limited in their ability to use stand-alone health reimbursement arrangements. The SBHRA addressed this by ensuring small business owners can use Health Reimbursement Arrangements to assist employees with individual health insurance and medical expenses. The SBHRA provides relief on multiple fronts to small businesses by expanding affordable health options, easing the burden of health-related administration, and helping companies to remain competitive for purposes of recruitment and retention. Lastly, the SBHRA benefits employees by affording them the flexibility and cost savings to personally choose the most appropriate health plan for their unique health needs on the individual market. Zane Benefits, and 63 other small business advocates, delivered a joint letter to House and Senate lawmakers on June 15, 2016, urging Congress to move swiftly to pass this vital legislation. Zane Benefits, and 25 other small business advocates, delivered a joint letter to House and Senate lawmakers on December 4, 2015, urging Congress to move this commonsense legislation forward. Zane Benefits, and 15 other major organizations, delivered a joint letter to House and Senate lawmakers on July 13, 2015, urging Congress to move swiftly to pass the Small Business Healthcare Relief Act.
