Summary of benefits and coverage contract addendums being mailed to fully insured clients
Issued by Anthem: July 16, 2012
As Anthem works toward the September 23, 2012, implementation date for the summary of benefits and coverage provision of the Affordable Care Act (or health care reform law), they want to keep you informed of communications being distributed to your clients about summary of benefits and coverage.
Within the next seven to 10 business days, they anticipate mailing summary of benefits and coverage contract addendums to fully insured customers. These addendums are being sent to:
- Clearly define the group’s responsibility to provide summaries of benefits and coverage to plan enrollees.
- Explain the provisions of the amendment to the group’s contract.
- Highlight how important it is for the group to send its renewal benefit information in a timely fashion.
- Provide an overview of how to deliver the summary of benefits and coverage to employees.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
