Proposed reform-law insurance tax rules issued
Modern Healthcare

The Obama administration has proposed rules implementing a health insurance premium tax to help fund the healthcare reform law, even as health insurers and Republicans continued a push to kill it. The health insurance tax is expected to collect $8 billion in 2014 and rise to $14.3 billion by 2018, according to the proposed rule. The proposed rule also specified entities that are exempt from the tax, including self-insured employers and any government entities.
