What is a Premium Reimbursement Arrangement?

A Premium Reimbursement Arrangement is an agreement for an employer to reimburse employees for their individual health insurance premium expenses.

The concept is simple. With a Premium Reimbursement Arrangement, the business offers employees a monthly healthcare allowance to use on individual health insurance – instead of contributing to a group health insurance plan.

This type of health insurance alternative is taking off because individual health insurance is now better, and less expensive, than group health insurance. Premium Reimbursement Arrangements give employers, and employees, all the advantages of health benefits without the cost or complication of group health insurance.
