The Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA) premium survey was distributed to employer groups on August 29 and redistributed this week. With less than half of groups completing the survey to date, we are extending the submission deadline to September 30, and Blue KC will continue to send reminder emails.
Here are some of the most common questions we’ve received about the survey.
Q. What should a group do if it did not receive the survey?
A. Groups that do not have a current email on file may not have received the survey, or it may have been blocked in their email system. Please share the following link with groups that did not receive the survey or are having difficulty with the original access link: https://bluekc.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5j5ALAqQkQxpZqK. Groups will be required to input group ID, group name, and email contact to respond to the survey.
Q. If a group was with another insurance carrier in 2020 or 2021, will Blue KC be able to submit the data for that year?
A. No, this reporting goes beyond the premium costs we are requesting from groups. Health insurers must report on claim costs, pharmacy costs, and more. Their other health insurer will submit this information on its own behalf. There is a safe harbor from federal enforcement for data submitted this year if the previous carrier does not submit this data or the group does not have precise records.
Q. Where can groups ask additional questions?
A. Please refer groups to CAAReporting@bluekc.com.
