Take Command Health launches industry-first ICHRA platform

by Amy

This just in! Our Individual Coverage HRA (ICHRA) administration platform is now open for business, in preparation for the new HRA’s effective date of January 2020 and open enrollment. ICHRA’s unlimited reimbursement rates and custom class options make it an attractive, tax-friendly solution for a larger footprint of companies looking to optimize their healthcare spend and take on less risk when it comes to employee benefits.

Our innovative platform allows employers to design custom 401(k)-style health benefits

ICHRA represents a new way for employers to provide health benefits. Instead of purchasing a traditional one-size-fits-all group plan, employers can provide a monthly allowance for employees to purchase their own insurance and get reimbursed. 

"HHS estimates up to 11 million employees could be using ICHRA in the next few years; we think it could be much higher,” shares Take Command Health CEO, Jack Hooper.

“Reimbursing is just so much simpler for employers compared to managing a traditional group plan, plus employees can then purchase exactly what they want. It’s a win-win.” 

Take Command Health is the only HRA solution to also provide a private insurance exchange, allowing employees to review and compare individual plans that will work with their ICHRA. This provides a one-stop shop for employers and employees and an excellent resource for brokers, CPAs, or benefits consultants looking to provide tax-friendly solutions to their clients. 

“We’re particularly proud of the employee experience and flexibility our platform provides for employers and employees,” adds Hooper. “We’ll support all 11 employee classes plus custom classes out of the gate. People will be surprised how flexible and simple it is to offer benefits this way.” 

The platform navigates users through employee class options, reimbursement rates, what to reimburse, waiting periods, start dates, and provides legal plan documents, employee onboarding, receipt tracking, compliance monitoring, and tax reporting.  

With no setup fees or long-term contracts, the new ICHRA product starts at $15 per employee per month and is available in all 50 states.

Hi, I'm Amy! I wrote this blog because I care about ideas (big and little) that can help fix our healthcare system. I used to work on projects for Kaiser Permanente and the Parkland Health & Hospital System so I've seen the system inside and out. It's so important that consumers keep up with industry shifts and changing health insurance regulations. I'm also Take Command Health's Content Editor and a busy mom.
