I previously asked this question but did not get a clear

I previously asked this question but did not get a clear concise direct answer. Yes or No, can an employer pay different contribution percentages towards different groups of employees?Can I pay 100% of partners insurance, 75% of directors insurance and employee pays 25% and 50% of staff insurance and employee pays 50%For the first time, my Company is now offering health insurance benefits. I would like to establish a tiered system by which different groups of employees will have their health insurance premiums will be paid for by the company, as per below:Partners 100% of premium paid by TAS - Employee contribution 0%Directors 75% of premium paid by TAS - Employee contribution 25%Staff 50% of premium paid by TAS - Employee contribution 50%These are full insured plans. Is this legal under the PPACA?Each plan offering will likely include (2) options: an HMO and aPOS (or equivalent). At the outset, the percentages above will apply to either option. However, if the spread between the two options becomes much larger, we reserve the right to restrict the percentages to the HMO option only. For example, if today the HMO option is $1,600 and the POS is $2,400, we would pay for a staff $800 for HMO or $1,200 for POS (50% of either option). However, let's say in 4 years, the options are $2,000 and $4,000 respectively, we may choose to simply pay for $1,000 max (50% of HMO only). If they choose the POS plan, they will be responsible for the other $3,000 in premium. Finally, in all cases, these are high-deductible plans and all individuals will be responsible for funding their own HSA accounts.Does this fully comply with all laws & regulations/
