Reminder: PCORI Fees Due August 1, 2022

As a reminder, employers that sponsor certain self-insured health plans are responsible for Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) fees.


Fees for plan years that ended in 2021 are due August 1, 2022, since July 31, 2022, is a Sunday.


Employers must report and pay the required PCORI fees annually via IRS Form 720.

For plan years ending on or after October 1, 2021 and before October 1, 2022, the fee for an employer sponsoring an applicable self-insured plan is $2.79 multiplied by the average number of lives covered under the plan.
