Q: What types of coverage are subject to the reinsurance contribution fee?

A: Major medical coverage. Stand-alone vision and dental plans, health savings accounts, health reimbursement arrangements, and health flexible spending accounts generally would not be subject.

Q: When will the first payment likely be due?

A: It appears the first payment, for 2014, will be due in January 2015. A self-insured, self-administered group health plan without a third-party administrator or contractor would make its reinsurance contributions to HHS directly.
