HC Update - February 2018

Key Highlights This Month:  

  • All Forms 1095-B were mailed by January 25.  If changes were made to a person’s 2017 eligibility and coverage after early December 2017, the changes will show on a corrected Form 1095-B.  The batch for generating corrected forms is expected to start running in February and will run weekly through April, and then monthly thereafter.
  • A WebEx training has been scheduled for February 15 for Super User Access and Prospect Person Records
