Do you have a Premium Only Plan? 
What is POP &
Non-Discrimination Testing?

A Premium Only Plan is an IRS approved way which allows employees to pay premiums with pre-tax dollars for medical, dental, vision, and other voluntary coverage.

Non-Discrimination Testing
In order to qualify for tax-favored status, a benefit plan must not discriminate in favor of highly compensated employees (HCEs) and key employees with respect to eligibility, contributions, or benefits.

You can request a Premium Only Plan Document

If your employees are paying their share of healthcare (medical, dental, and vision) premiums via pre-tax payroll deduction, you (the employer) are required under IRS Code Section 125, to maintain a current Premium Only Plan (POP) document. The document includes a Summary Plan Description and Section 125 Plan Document.

If you have a full Flex plan, which includes FSA/Dependent Care accounts, the pre-tax premium plan is likely already included in your Summary Plan Document and you won't need a separate POP plan.
However, you should confirm that with the vendor or review your plan documents.

As a courtesy, Dealey, Renton & Associates, will provide a POP document for your firm
upon request.
