Payroll Contribution for Group Health Insurance
Higher Education Information
Applicable institutions of higher education continue to compute the Payroll Health Insurance Contribution by calculating 1.0 percent of the base salary paid to each benefits eligible employee for every payroll that began with the September 2011 payroll month.
The Payroll Health Insurance Contribution amount is reported as part of the TEXNET or recurring transaction index (RTI) process each month. A line item is included in TEXNET, and an RTI number exists to facilitate reporting.
