The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) fee filing deadline is August 1, 2022, for all self-funded medical plans and HRAs for plan years ending in 2021. The IRS issued Notice 2022-04 announcing the adjusted fee amount for this year.
The plan years and associated amounts are as follows:
Employers with self-funded health plans ending in 2021 should use the 2nd quarter Form 720 to file and pay the PCOR fee by August 1, 2022. The information is reported in Part II.
Please note that Form 720 is a tax form (not an informational return form such as Form 5500). As such, the employer or an accountant would need to prepare it. Parties other than the plan sponsor, such as third-party administrators, cannot report or pay the fee.
