2-50: Effects of Mental Health Parity on Small Group
Sep 16, 2010
Employers that are currently over 51 employees that are able to meet small group guidelines under AB1672 are able to be written under small group.
Aetna will be using the information provided on the Employer Verification Form to determine if a group is subject to Mental Health Parity.
Employers are requested to complete this form approximately 6 months after their effective date or renewal date.
For current Small Group accounts up for renewal that have 51 or more employees for 50% of the previous calendar year, Aetna will apply the MHP benefit changes and increase the premium by approximately 1% to account for the new benefits.
Groups with 51+ renewing in small group that have Pick-A-Plan may make plan changes during open enrollment.
Groups with 51+ renewing in small group that do not have Pick-A-Plan will be required to renew
