An Employer’s Guide: American Rescue Plan Act of 2021

In the first sweeping legislation for the new 117th Congress, H.R.1319, a $1.865 trillion-dollar COVID-19 relief bill, becomes law.

In addition to providing direct assistance to many Americans, namely through $1,400 in income tax rebates for eligible individuals and an increased child tax credit, the legislation also contains many provisions related to health insurance coverage and group employee benefits plans.

These include direct federal subsidies for both COBRA continuation coverage and individual insurance policies purchased through health insurance exchange marketplaces.
