Save Money at the Pharmacy and Keep the Rx Claims off Your Experience!
We are very excited to roll out a new Rx program called Prescription Hope. This is a value-add program to traditional prescription medication coverage. Prescription Hope is NOT an insurance
This is truly a wonderful program for our employers and their employees. Those who qualify (based on income) will pay $30 per prescription per month. No application fees, annual fees, or hidden charges. Qualified individuals will deal directly with Prescription Hope to receive their medications every month, and because it’s NOT an insurance plan, the pharmacy claims are NOT included in your claims experience with the insurance carriers. Also, because this is not an insurance plan, anyone can sign up! Part-time employees, those who waive the benefits, friends, family, etc.plan or discount card. They are national advocacy program that obtains prescription medications for Americans at a price they can afford. Qualified individuals obtain their medication for the set price of $30 per medication per month.

IRS Releases 2016 Draft Instructions for Forms 1094-C and 1095-C
The IRS has released the 2016 Draft Instructions for Forms 1094-C and 1095-C to help employers prepare for calendar year 2016 information reporting. Employers are required to report in early 2017 for calendar year 2016
Who is Required to Report
Under the Affordable Care Act, applicable large employers (“ALEs”)-
generally those with 50 or more full-time employees, including full-time equivalent employees-use Forms 1094-C and 1095-C to report information to the IRS and to their employees about their compliance with the employer shared responsibility provisions (“pay or play”) and the health care coverage they have offered.
Key Changes for 2016 Reporting
Among other changes, the 2016 draft instructions clarify:
- The reporting rules which require employers who are Members of an “Aggregated ALE Group”-a group of ALE Members treated as a single employer under the Internal Revenue Code-to file Forms 1094-C and 1095-C, even if the ALE Member has fewer than 50 full-time employees of its own;
- The indicator codes that should be used to report offers of COBRA continuation coverage on lines 14 and 16 of Form 1095-C; and
- The definitions of “full-time employee” and “Employee Required Contribution” for purposes of Forms 1094-C and 1095-C reporting.
