The Affordable Care Act created a three-year transitional reinsurance program that reimburses health insurers in the individual market (both inside and outside the Marketplace/Exchanges) for losses they sustain when they enroll individuals who are higher-cost claimants. Health insurers and group health plans must contribute to this program by paying fees over a three-year period. 2016 is the third and final year for which these fees will be assessed. The submission required for this final year’s fees must be filed by November 15, 2016, using the same online process used for the two prior years (i.e., via www.pay.gov). The required form for submitting the fees was added to that website on October 3, 2016.
