ACA Member Months Coverage Report Available for ASC Accounts - 2018

Our Administrative Services Contract (ASC) accounts will gain access to a tax reporting service, which follows the Affordable Care Act (ACA) guidelines. As part of our continued efforts to provide service enhancements, we will once again give you the choice to have us run your Member Months Coverage Report at no cost. This service is available to ASC accounts for the 2018 tax year. The Member Months Coverage Report provides data for each of our members enrolled for at least one month in one of our plans. The report will include:

  • Account number
  • Group number
  • Member number
  • First, middle and last name
  • Individual suffix
  • Full name
  • Individual Social Security Number (SSN)
  • Date of birth
  • Months covered for each member
  • Dependent status
  • Individual insurance ID
  • Recipient Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) type
  • Individual TIN type
  • Subscriber SSN
  • Subscriber address

We will not be soliciting Social Security numbers—and will instead rely on you to accurately update this information through FileLink or BlueLinks prior to January 1, 2019. Each account is responsible for sending the report file to your tax vendor and filing the data with the IRS.

Retroactive enrollment will be included in an incremental file that we will generate in February, 2019.

To request a Member Months Coverage Report, please notify your account executive by November 1, 2018.
