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 $11,100 for self-only coverage and $29,750 for family coverage in 2022.  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.
