360 PLUSSTM Delivers for Employers and Employees.
• Tax Savings
• Improved Health
• Improved Worker Productivity
On average, the employer sees a $500 Tax Saving Per Employee that goes straight to their bottom line. The average employee enjoys a Tax Savings of $1,800. The employee’s money can be added to their HSA, FSA, or used to purchase ancillary benefits. It is the equivalent of giving every employee a $1,800 raise, not at ZERO Cost, but giving them a raise and in return adding $500 to your bottom line.
How does 360 PLUSSTM deliver tax savings?
360 PLUSSTM utilizes three documents, a Preventative Care Management Plan document, a Section 125 Plan document, and a SIMRP document, to create a fully IRS, ERISA, and ACA compliant is a Preventative Care Management Program.
Employees are reimbursed premiums by their employer for actively participating in a 213(d) compliant wellness program, generating tax savings for employees. The model has been meticulously reviewed by CPAs and ERISA attorneys to ensure compliance. Section 104(a)(3) states as long as the premium being reimbursed correlates with benefits that are Sec 213(d) compliant, the reimbursement is not taxable because they are employee contributions.
The Self-Insured Medical Reimbursement Plan SIMRP allows employee reimbursement of 213(d) compliant medical expenses, which includes preventative care. Having 213(d) compliant benefits is the differentiator between a compliant program and a non-compliant program. The IRS Chief Counsel Memo Number: 201622031 (5/27/2016) states:
Under the SIMRP, a reimbursement of the premium for the 213(d) compliant preventative care management program is compliant with 105-11 guidelines. It does not have to be the actual dollar value of each use of the 213(d) compliant benefits or how much they have used during the pay period.

Improved Worker Productivity
While most employers understand that investing in human capital improves the company bottom line, many are only beginning to understand the impact health has on worker productivity. The indirect costs of poor health including absenteeism, disability, or reduced work output are estimated to be multiples higher than healthcare expenses.
Productivity losses related to personal and family health problems cost U.S. employers $1,685 per employee per year, or $225.8 billion annually according to the CDC. Indirect costs affect all employers, even those who avoid direct medical costs by not funding health insurance.
Absenteeism is when a worker is not at their place of work. Sometimes absenteeism is due to physical health challenges. However, it can also be attributed to mental health causes, ranging from stress and anxiety to depression and a host of other mental and behavioral health challenges, including substance abuse disorders.
Presenteeism occurs when a worker is reporting to work but is not working up to their full capability or capacity due to illness or mental health challenges. Physical and mental health issues prevent well intentioned employees from doing their best work. Common causes of presenteeism include diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and other chronic health conditions. The Harvard Business Review estimated that presenteeism costs the U.S. economy upwards of $350 billion annually in lost productivity.
