How Tax Reduction Works with Preventative Health Initiative: The Impact of the Affordable Care Act on PHI


May 30, 2024

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has brought significant changes to the way health insurance and wellness programs are implemented in the workplace. One of the most noteworthy aspects of the ACA is its emphasis on preventative health through rewards and penalties. These measures incentivize employers to provide benefits and encourage employees to maintain better health, ultimately reducing long-term healthcare costs.

The Mechanics of Incentives

Under the ACA, incentives for employers have been increased to promote better self-care among employees. The core idea is that preventative measures are far less costly than treating chronic diseases later in life. For example, type 2 diabetes, a preventable lifestyle disease, can cost about $600,000 per person over a lifetime. By offering better coaching and information before employees get sick, we can save significant amounts on public health expenses.

Leveraging Tax Credits and Benefits

Employers can take advantage of section 125 tax credits, also known as cafeteria plans, to offer benefits without incurring out-of-pocket expenses. These plans provide tax advantages that make it easier for employers to fund wellness programs and other secondary benefits. By participating in these programs, employers can save about $500 per employee per year. For a company with 100 employees, this translates to $50,000 in savings annually. Additionally, each employee can earn about $1,500 in cash value in a life insurance policy, which can be used in the future.

Comprehensive Wellness Solutions

Implementing a wellness plan can be daunting due to its complexity and cost. However, our solution simplifies this process by managing everything on behalf of the employer. Our Preventative Health Initiative is designed to be cost-effective and efficient, ensuring that employers can provide benefits with minimal effort. This involves enrolling, educating, and consistently managing the wellness plans for all employees, which significantly reduces the administrative burden on the employer.

The benefits of our wellness program extend beyond cost savings. Employees receive additional wellness benefits and life insurance, which enhances their overall well-being and job satisfaction. Employers benefit from tax incentives and a healthier, more productive workforce. The entire system is implemented and managed for the employer, requiring only about three hours of labor to get started. This low-effort, high-return approach makes it a compelling option for any business.
