IRS posts advice on new research fee

Officials at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) have published documents that could shed a little light on how health insurers will pay the new, $1-per-enrollee Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) support fee.

The fee -- created by sections 4375 and 4376 of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC), which were, in turn, created by the Section 6301 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) -- is supposed to help PCORI fund research aimed at showing which medical treatments work best, which are most affordable, and which seem to provide the best value.
