Essential StaffCARE introduces ESC Bronze—its fully-insured, ACA-Compliant true major medical plan designed to meet the needs of the staffing industry—along with enhanced Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC) and Fixed Indemnity solutions. New ESC Bronze provides full in-patient hospitalization benefits to ensure ACA compliance and replaces first-generation Minimum Value Plans grandfathered through 2015. ESC Bronze has no minimum enrollment or participation, eliminates (A) tax for employers, and employer contribution is optional to eliminate or manage (B) tax. ESC’s MEC Plan is an ACA-compliant, ERISA-qualified employer-sponsored wellness and preventive plan covering 63 preventive and wellness services.
Completely voluntary with no employer contribution required, a self-funded ESC MEC eliminates the $2,000 (A) tax on all full-time employees and eliminates the (B) tax penalty for any full-time employees enrolled in ESC MEC. ESC’s flagship Fixed Indemnity Plans help employees who are unable to afford high premiums, deductibles, and co-pays of traditional major medical insurance plans.
