Companies with 20 or more employees are subject to a federal law called COBRA, the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act. COBRA gives employees and their family members covered under your health benefits plan the right to continue their coverage for a limited period of time if they lose the coverage for certain reasons, such as job loss, reduction in hours, divorce, and death. Some companies with less than 20 employees may have State Continuation Coverage programs (often called mini-COBRA) available which are similar to federal COBRA rules, but fall under state-level regulations.
HIPAA, or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, refers to a federal law that includes protections for limiting pre-existing condition exclusions when a person moves from one group-sponsored health plan to another (known as portability of creditable coverage). HIPAA also provides a special enrollment period for a person to join a new health plan provided they meet certain criteria, such as loss of creditable coverage due job loss, divorce or death.
When it comes to health benefits administration, HIPAA and COBRA are two areas you want to make sure you get right. The complexities of COBRA can be overwhelming, and there are stiff penalties and fines when the law is not followed properly. So, let your HPHQ Guru show you options to implement a COBRA administration solution and leave it to the experts to manage for you!Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5
Section 125 refers to a U.S. Code that describes certain employee health care benefits that can be excluded from the calculation of gross income for federal income tax purposes. Such plans include:
- Premium Only Plans (POP) for Medical, Dental and Vision premium payroll deductions
- Flexible Spending Accounts for Out-of-Pocket Medical and Dependent Care Expenses
- Employee Health Savings Account Contributions made via payroll deduction
The advantage of offering Section 125 Plans to your employees is that their taxable income for federal, state, and FICA (social security and Medicare) is reduced by the amount of their pre-tax payroll deductions that pay for the cost of health insurance premiums and out-of-pocket healthcare expenses.
With your employees’ FICA taxes being reduced, the key advantage to you, as the employer, is that it also reduces the 7.65% FICA Matching Contribution that you pay for each of your employees. Therefore, you save 7.65 cents for every dollar that is part of a Section 125 plan. As an example, if you have 40 employees who each have a $200.00 monthly share of medical premium through a Section 125 POP plan, your company saves $612.00 per month in FICA contributions!
Your HPHQ Guru will discuss Section 125 Plans with you at greater length and help you set up the appropriate types of plans to help you and your employees start saving more money now!Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5

Making a retirement savings plan available to your employees is one key way to show that you are committed to their future. Two of the most common types of employer-sponsored plans are:
- 401(k) Plans – employees defer a portion of their salary on a pre-tax basis, and often the employer makes a matching contribution
- Profit Sharing Plans – employers make 100% of the contributions and have the sole determination of how much to contribute on behalf of their employees
