Covered California for Small Business (CCSB) has great news for your Special Enrollment Period (SEP) groups for 1/1/2018. These new groups have two new options available to them that were not available in previous years:
- SEP groups can write CCSB alongside any other carrier (except CaliforniaChoice®) without having to meet the 70% participation requirement (applicable only to SEP groups). A non-SEP group can still write alongside other carriers (excluding CaliforniaChoice®), but must meet the 70% participation requirement with CCSB.
- CCSB has a new Census Waiver form that SEP groups can use to submit their waiver information (applicable only to SEP groups). This form only requires the following information for your group’s waiving members: first name, last name, if they are waiving and reason for the waiver.
Download the waiver here.
Groups have many reasons why CCSB is the right fit for them, including easier restrictions for out-of-state members, employee-only coverage options, no service or late fees, available small business tax credits and a rich portfolio of carriers, plan types, networks and price points to meet any member’s needs. These two new options add to a growing list of reasons why CCSB is right for your groups.
