ACA Insurer Tax

A fee imposed on entities engaged in providing health insurance in the United States to help fund the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, or ACA).  The fee is based on each insurer's share of the taxable health insurance premium base. This tax does not apply to self-insured employers, government entities, some nonprofit organizations, and certain voluntary employee beneficiary associations.
