    This is our first year doing ACA and 1095C's through Lawson.  I wanted to get everyone input on how they put the priorities on their medical plans on BN15.3.  The Benefits Administration Guide states that you put your highest coverage plan with a priority of 1.  We have 3 plans, and the plan that we based all of our ACA affordability off of has a $1250 deductible (lowest cost out of employee pay checks).  However, we do have one with a $500 deductible (highest cost of out pay check).  The plan with the $500 deductible plan technically has more coverage since the deductible is lower.  However, I struggle with this logic since, as I said before, all of our ACA affordability calculations were off our higher deductible plan.

    What has everyone else done with this?

    We put the plan with the lowest employee cost in Priority 1.
