Essential StaffCARE has been contacted by several staffing companies reporting they have received unexpected mid-year termination notices from their Voluntary Employee Beneficiary Association (VEBA) Trust/Captive plan. These notices made reference to their networks pulling out of the plans.
The possibility of VEBA Trust/Captive plan promoters putting their clients at risk was predicted by Essential StaffCARE in our October 2015 Industry Alert.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, open positions in the United States reached an all-time high in July of 2017, peaking at 6.17 million available jobs. 
Staffing firms are being challenged, more than ever, to find and keep quality candidates to fill open positions. 
New research by Essential StaffCARE reveals a key indicator of employee interest, attitude
and longevity is the availability of affordable, useable health benefits. In the most comprehensive study of its kind, an analysis of over a half million temporary employees revealed those enrolled in ESC Indemnity plans stayed with their employer 47% longer (3.6 weeks) on average. 
Longer tenure translates into bottom line revenue, satisfied clients and motivated employees.

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) trust fund fee is a fee on issuers of specified health insurance policies and plan sponsors of applicable self-insured health plans to help fund related medical research.

Essential StaffCARE has prepared a guide to understanding PCORI fees, which are due by July 31st of each year for the previous tax year. The fee is generally nominal but can be confusing as to how it is calculated and paid.
