Premium Only Plans:

You and your employees pay less in taxes. With a POP, you can save money by lowering your tax expenses, and help your employees keep more money in their pockets.

Premium Only Plan (POP)

The Premium Only Plan, or POP, is an employee benefit that can help both you and your employees reduce tax expenses by letting employees pay part of their health insurance premiums with pre-tax dollars.

Benefits of a Premium Only Plan

For your business:

  • Reduce your payroll tax costs (Social Security, Medicare and other payroll tax expenses).
  • Offset the rising cost of benefit premiums with your payroll tax savings.
  • Decrease your health insurance contributions with little to no effect on employee costs:
    • If your employees don’t contribute to the cost of their health insurance, you can initiate a contribution strategy with minimal impact to their salaries.
    • If your employees already contribute, you can increase how much they contribute without negatively affecting their take-home pay.

For your employees:

  • Employees’ taxable salary is reduced because they will use pre-tax dollars to pay part of their insurance premiums.
  • The amount of their take home pay increases because they pay less tax.
