1-50: Incorrect SS# Format in MLR Rebates

Jul 10, 2014

Anthem recently mailed medical loss ratio (MLR) rebate checks to Small Group employers who qualify for these rebates. Each rebate came with a list of employees’ Social Security numbers and rebate amounts. Unfortunately, the format for the Social Security numbers was incorrect.

The correct format is XXX-X1-234X. Please let your clients know so employers can distribute the rebate checks to eligible employees. Here is an ​example of a list Anthem mailed to your clients.

The Affordable Care Act requires MLR rebates when less than 80% of the premium is spent on health care services.

Also, please see the article ​Anthem Filed Report on MLR for California for additional information.

For questions, please ​contact a member of your b&p Sales Team - 888.722.3373.
