Research Fees and the Affordable Care Act

How Comparative Effectiveness Research Fees May Impact Your Business - Download the White Paper today from CBG Benefits!As implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) moves forward, questions are being answered regarding how initiatives will be funded. One of those items is the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).

While both patients and health care providers will benefit from PCORI’s work, it’s important for employers to note how it will be funded.

The Impact on Your Business

The ACA requires health insurance issuers and sponsors of self-insured health plans to pay fees that will help finance the institute’s efforts. These fees are primarily being referred to as CER fees (short for “comparative effectiveness research”).

While the first deadline for paying the CER fees is not until July 31, 2013, employers should take time now to assess their compliance obligations.
