Well, here we go again. Another year!

Arizona Benefit Plans had a very successful 2021, capping it off with one of the busiest 1/1’s we have had in recent memory. We owe all that success to your continued partnership and support. Thank you!
We asked Todd Martin, Chief Sales Officer, to tell us a little bit about Nova and provide us with monthly updates and information on Nova that we can share with you in future newsletters. Below is the first installment:

Hi, We’re Nova
2022 marks Nova’s 40th birthday! We’ve got the grey hair to prove it – and we also have the wisdom. Nova’s knowledge and experience in the marketplace allows us to operate outside of the box to find solutions that others simply won’t consider for a variety of health plan needs — medical, dental, vision, COBRA, reimbursement account administration and private-labeled partnerships. We provide personal and personalized service and solutions for our clients. We balance analysis and service to provide relevant, impactful plans. Bottom line: We are in the business of finding a better way — in constant pursuit of the right solution because we believe there is always an answer and it’s worth the effort to find it. We see the people that health plans serve and the businesses they support — and we partner with them on their path to better care.
Many large employers are still struggling to provide health care coverage that meets the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) Employer Mandate regulations and avoid A & B penalties. Fortunately, Allied National’s Cost Saver Bronze Minimum Value Plan (MVP) affordably eliminates both penalties.
Any employer who has 50 or more full-time equivalent employees is considered an applicable large employer (ALE) under IRS rules and must offer health coverage to full-time employees.
The ACA’s Employer Mandate has two different penalties for noncompliance:
  • Penalty A applies if an ALE simply doesn’t offer coverage to at least 95% of its full-time employees.

  • Penalty B applies if coverage is offered, but it’s not affordable and/or doesn’t provide Minimum Value.
Allied’s new Bronze MVP is ACA compliant and requires no medical underwriting for groups from two or more. A group cannot be turned down because of health concerns. Let us know if you would like to see a quote for this product!
