ACHA Submits Comments to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services/Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight

4/16/14.

ACHA, with the assistance of its Student Health Insurance/Benefits Plans Coalition, has further updated the ACA FAQs to provide information regarding the actuarial value “metal tiers” established in the ACA, and information on the employer shared responsibility for coverage as it relates to graduate students and student employees who may be working in a number of different work settings at the institution. Questions 30 through 36 have been added to address these areas.

Additionally, ACHA has contacted the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services regarding flexibility in regard to the “metal tier” actuarial value [pdf] of student health insurance plans.
