Insurance Provider Assessment Act (IPAA)

On June 11, 2018 legislation created a new multi-tiered health insurance tax that was signed into law by Governor Snyder.  Specifically, 2018 PA 175 (PA 175) created the Insurance Provider Assessment Act (IPAA), which institutes a new health care-related tax incorporating both a fixed and variable rate structure.  A companion act, 2018 PA 173 (PA 173), repeals the current Health Insurance Claims Assessment Act (HICAA) as of the date that the assessment under the IPAA begins to be levied, and a second companion act, 2018 PA 174 (PA 174), eliminates a provision of the Use Tax Act that would have reinstated the Medicaid managed care use tax on July 1, 2020, the date that HICAA was previously scheduled to sunset.
