Web Enrollment Updates That Now Require Social Security Numbers

In 2015 we published communication regarding the new reporting requirements for Minimum Essential Coverage under the Affordable Care Act.  Within the requirements is the need to solicit Social Security numbers for the IRS. Effective May 2016, new enrollments and change coverage transactions entered by groups or brokers via the web will now require dependent* Social Security numbers.

*Only applies to dependents over one year of age.
