New PCORI Fee to be Imposed on Sponsors of Health Plans

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) created a new fee called the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) fee. This fee is to be used to fund research on medical treatment effectiveness and is to be paid by both fully insured and self-funded group health plans.

The fee for the first year is $1 per person enrolled in the plan. A person enrolled in the plan includes the participating employee, spouses, domestic partners and dependents. COBRA and retiree participants also must be counted.

The fee is due based on the year-end of the plan, beginning with plans ending on or after October 1, 2012.
