The Center for Consumer Information & Insurance Oversight (CIIO), part of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has created a transitional reinsurance program contributions site.
The reinsurance fee, which will be collected for 2014, 2015, and 2016, is assessed by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on employers or insurers to stabilize premiums in the individual health insurance market. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services recently provided details on the submission process and supporting documentation file layout.
Groups are required to register and provide their enrollment counts through the pay.gov website by November 15, 2014, for the 2014 collection. Payment will be made in 2015. For more information see our earlier Affordable Care Act Implementation Alert about the Reinsurance Fee.
