Some Reminders are Worth Repeating (article)

A couple reminders about annual health plan reporting obligations mentioned last month bear repeating.   Specifically:

  • Multiple employer welfare arrangement (MEWA) including an association health plan (AHP) are required to annually file the Form M-1 with the Department of Labor.  The 2018 Form M-1 annual report is due by March 1, 2019. 
  • Group health plans, whether insured or self-funded, must annually complete and file a Creditable Coverage Disclosure Form to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The form filing must be accomplished electronically, and is due within 60 days of the commencement of the plan year. For calendar year plans, this means the disclosure filing must be accomplished no later than March 2, 2019.
