Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts has received Minimum Creditable Coverage (MCC) certification from the Massachusetts Health Connector for several high deductible health plans for 2016 and 2017. The specific plans noted below on their own are now MCC-compliant and no longer need to be paired with a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) or require an account attestation form confirming an HRA has been funded.

The plans referenced above are standard base plans or are available with rider options. We requested MCC certification based on $100 increments only. Any amount between $2,000 and $3,000 that is not a $100 increment will either require the use of the existing attestation process or require the account to request separate Certification to the Connector.
