Important Update: Revised Annual Group Information Form

This is a follow up to our recent email news regarding state and federal regulations that require us to obtain certain information on our employer group clients.

In the Broker News sent on Thursday, July 2, we included a PDF of the 2015 Group Information Form (GIF). Due to ACA requirements, the form has since been modified to more accurately capture group size information.

The changes we made included:

Section #3 under "Medical Full Time Equivalent Calculation,” question #11 is now using 1,440 total hours per year for a part-time employee. 

  • Updated 2015 GIF (PDF) (Updated 8/13/15 - with editable fields so you can fill out, save and print.)

We also added new instructions to help groups complete the form.

The new web-based GIF form is still on track to be launched in early August of this year.

Please share this information with your groups. If you have any questions, please contact your account consultant.
