ASC Accounts: Action Needed to Request an ACA Member Months Report

As a reminder, all of our Administrative Services Contract (ASC) accounts are being offered a tax reporting service, which follows the Affordable Care Act (ACA) guidelines. As part of our continual efforts to provide service enhancements, we are giving you the choice to have us run your Member Months Coverage Report at no cost. Please notify your account executive prior to November 1, 2016, if you want Blue Cross to run this report.

This service is available to ASC accounts for the 2016 tax year. The Member Months Coverage Report includes 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
  • First and last name
  • Date of birth
  • Months covered for each member

We will not be soliciting Social Security numbers–we will rely on you to accurately update this information through FileLink or BlueLinks prior to January 1, 2017.

The report will be sent to you via infosecure in early January 2017. 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.
