PCORI Fee (Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute)
PCORI fees are reported and paid annually using IRS Form 720 (Quarterly Federal Excise Tax Return). These fees are due each year by July 31 of the year following the last day of the plan year. For plan years ending in 2020, the PCORI fees are due by Aug. 2, 2021 (since July 31, 2021, is a Saturday).
Who pays the PCORI fee?
A. For fully insured plans, the insurance carrier is responsible for filing Form 720 and paying the PCORI fee; therefore, employers with only fully insured health plans have no filing requirement (but will be charged by the carrier for the cost of the fee). If an employer sponsors a self-insured health plan, the employer must file Form 720 and pay the PCORI fee. For self-insured plans with multiple employers, the named plan sponsor is generally required to file Form 720.
