The Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA) protects patients from surprise medical bills and other health-related provisions. To do so, health insurers and health plans are required to submit certain information to the federal government.
Blue KC kicks off that process by requesting employer groups to submit the following for calendar years 2020 and 2021:
- Average monthly premium amount paid on behalf of members
- Average monthly premium amount paid by employees
Blue KC will submit the required reporting on behalf of employer groups for the services we provide. For groups that carve out certain services such as pharmacy, the federal government will allow for multiple report submissions from separate entities.
In August, employer groups will receive an email from Blue KC about the mandate with a link to a Qualtrics survey to submit their data. Please let your employer groups know about this requirement, the importance of complying, and the email they will soon receive.
If you have questions, please contact your Blue KC representative.
