Feds OK health plan discounts for coronavirus vaccination

A trio of federal agencies Oct. 4 clarified that employers may offer health plan discounts for workers who receive the coronavirus vaccine, without running afoul of federal law.

A group health plan may offer participants a premium discount for receiving a COVID-19 vaccination if the discount complies with federal wellness program regulations, according to the FAQ document. Among other requirements, that means the reward can’t exceed 30% of the cost of employee-only coverage and that employers may need to offer an alternative to vaccination.
