The ACA established the Early Retiree Reinsurance Program (ERRP) as a temporary program to reimburse employer and union sponsors of participating employment-based plans for a portion of the cost of health benefits for early retirees and their spouses, surviving spouses, and dependents. CMS has published a notice that sets forth termination dates for several operational processes in preparation for the January 1, 2014 ERRP program sunset date. These operational processes include: the submission of changes to information in a plan sponsor’s ERRP application; the reporting of plan sponsor change of ownership; the submission of reimbursement requests; the reporting and correction of data inaccuracies; and the request for reopenings of reimbursement determinations. The notice is effective April 19, 2013.
