4 01 key considerations
401: Key Considerations

For most employers, your decisions should be made based on getting value for your health care dollar – not about penalties

  • Roughly 90% of businesses with a payroll are businesses under 50 employees  penalties don’t apply to these businesses
  • Roughly 90% of businesses over 50 employees provide health insurance benefits to employees which generally meet all standards to avoid penalties
