Effective immediately, FormFire is enforcing new requirements for Anthem for SOCA BP sold case submissions.
What does this mean?
Brokers will not be able to submit a sold case to Anthem in Send Forms unless the group has completed the following:
- Employer plan(s) assigned
- Assigned plan(s) pricing added
- Each employee has a plan elected (unless waiving coverage)
Why is this being enforced?
This information is required for FormFire to generate files for the continuation vendor, myCOBRAPlan. Failure to include this information when the group is sold creates a delay in the files being generated and sent to myCOBRAPlan in a timely fashion.
Continuation services are embedded in the Anthem SOCA BP product. myCobraPlan is the exclusive continuation provider for participating employers in the Anthem for SOCA BP. Employers must use myCobraPlan, so that continuation can be administered for SOCA participants. myCobraPlan will administer federal and state continuation services for employees enrolled in the Anthem for SOCA BP product, including: general notice distribution, qualifying event administration, premium billing and collection, and COBRA termination processing.
