Non-profits need health care incentives CUNA
WASHINGTON (10/1/09)--While it supports health care assistance for small employers, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) said Wednesday that the same standards should also apply to non-profit employers, including federal- and state-chartered credit unions, that seek the same benefits for their employees. CUNA made its remarks in a letter to Senate Finance Committee members Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) which addressed a modified version of the America’s Healthy Future Act of 2009 which provides tax credits to help small employers cover the cost of purchasing health insurance for their employees. As written, an amendment to the bill that was offered by Sens. Kerry, Snowe, Schumer, Lincoln and Cantwell would extend these same benefits to non-profits, but only to those that are organized under Section 501(c)(3) of Internal Revenue Service Code. While positive, this would still exclude 27 types of non-profits that are organized under Section 501(c) of the IRS code. In closing, CUNA President/CEO Dan Mica asked for “employer parity and basic fairness” to “prevail” by allowing the bill’s incentives to apply to “all small employers.”
