How to Make the $100-a-day Penalty Non-Applicable

You may have wondered why an S corporation can pay for or reimburse a solo owner-employee’s individually purchased health insurance without worrying about the $100-a-day penalty.

 

The answer is that the S corporation’s payments of the solo shareholder-employee’s individual health insurance premiums are exempt from the $100-a-day penalty.

 

The exemption does not apply to health coverage for the rank-and-file employees. For the rank and file, you need either

 

  • a qualified small-employer health reimbursement arrangement (QSEHRA), or

  • group health insurance.
