2024 Decrease in ACA Health Plan Affordability Threshold

2024 Decrease in ACA Health Plan Affordability Threshold

Sep 18, 2023, < 1 Minute Read

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has announced the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) health plan affordability threshold for 2024 at 8.39%, a significant decrease from the 2023 figure of 9.12%.

The threshold is used in determining if Applicable Large Employers (ALE’s) health plans are considered affordable under the ACA employer mandate. This requirement does not apply to non-ALE businesses.

This is a significant reduction in the affordability threshold. Your ALE clients should be aware of the change, and may need to make changes to their health plan’s 2024 employee contribution in order to remain compliant.

For details, visit SHRM and Woodruff Sawyer, and the IRS website.

Contact us today for assistance with your ALE groups.
