Employees may apply for health coverage directly through the Health Insurance Marketplace, also known as the “Exchange”.

Employees must pay for this coverage on a after-tax basis. Beginning, 2014, your church may not provide its employees with a pre-tax reimbursement for the cost of coverage obtained through the Exchange. However, it may increase an employee’s wages by an amount equal to the cost of that coverage.

Any increase in wages for the cost of Exchange coverage must be included as income on the employee’s annual Form W-2 and is subject to federal, social security and state taxes. You may “gross up” the amount of the increase to offset the taxes due.

Your church cannot use a health reimbursement arrange (HRA) or an employer payment plan to reimburse premiums on a pre-tax basis.
