What is the Cadillac Tax?

The “Cadillac Tax” is a 40% tax on the value of employer-sponsored health coverage that exceeds certain benefit thresholds – estimated to be $10,800 for self-only coverage and $29,100 for family coverage in 2020.  While the name may imply the 40% tax applies to a few individuals with “luxury” health coverage, the truth is it extends much further. More than 178 million Americans – including retirees, low- and moderate-income families, public sector employees, small business owners and the self-employed – currently depend on employer-sponsored health coverage.

This coverage is the backbone of our health care system and protects over 175 million Americans across the United States. The Alliance seeks to repeal the 40% tax on employee health benefits to ensure that employer-sponsored coverage remains an effective and affordable option for working Americans and their families.
