As a follow up to the premium credits issued to small groups over the past two weeks, two clarifications are being sent with December invoices.
The first clarification is for groups that are enrolled through the ACA and are tobacco rated. Because of invoicing system limitations, the original set of December invoices sent to 1,450 groups does not show the credit applied to the premium amounts listed. Medical Mutual is sending a revised December invoice with the 30 percent credit shown as being applied to the groups’ previous balances. This letter explaining the situation will be included with the new invoices.
The second clarification is for groups that added a line of business to their Medical Mutual coverage on or after June 1, 2020. The premium credits apply only to those Medical Mutual lines of business with which a group was active prior to June 1, 2020. Any line of business a group may have added June 1, 2020, or later is not eligible for the premium credit. This letter is being included with the December invoices to explain the situation. There are 84 groups that fall into this category. Invoices for a portion of these groups were generated with the clarification noted, so a letter will NOT need to be included.
