This past December, Congress attached numerous tax provisions to a series of the omnibus government funding bills including the repeal of the health insurance provider fee (the “9010 fee”) for years after Dec. 31, 2020. This legislation was subsequently approved by the president. Initially imposed by the Affordable Care Act, the 9010 fee is a nondeductible fee for each covered entity engaged in the business of providing health insurance for United States health risks. The fee, which began Jan. 1, 2014, is an aggregate flat fee allocated based on an insurance company’s net written premiums compared to the total net written premiums of all covered health insurance companies. The aggregate fee for 2020 is $15,522,820,037.
