DE-9C not required for new group submission with 6 or more enrolled
Effective immediately, Anthem is making it easier for you to do business with them, by continuing to simplify enrollment for Small Groups. You will no longer be required to submit a Quarterly State Tax Withholding Report (DE-9C)** for groups with 6 or more enrolled employees, through December 15, 2016 effective dates.
New business submissions will need to include an agent quote, Employer Application, employee applications, waivers from all employees not electing coverage, legal documentation, Statement of Understanding, Electronic Debit Payment Form, and a copy of last month’s prior carrier group premium statement for all products elected.
**Please note, while DE-9C’s are not required for groups of 6 or more enrolled through this promotion, Anthem does reserve the right to request a DE-9C to validate eligibility upon our discretion (e.g. variations in prior carrier bill and actual enrollment, future audits, etc.)
