State insurance regulators have given the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) transitional reinsurance program its own identification number.
In 2014, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is running the “Transitional ACA Reinsurance Program” with revenue from a $63-per-life fee from commercial health insurers and self-employed health plans.
When health insurers put information about the reinsurance program in quarterly and annual financial statements, they should put “00000″ in the NAIC Company Code column and AA-9990032 in the ID number column, officials say. Insurers should give “U.S. Department of Health and Human Services” as the name of the company, and “DC” as the domiciliary jurisdiction.
The Financial Condition Committee, an arm of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), has the authority to make routine changes to insurance company financial statement “blanks” by adopting task force and working group technical reports. The committee gave the ID number proposal final approval Monday, by approving a task force report at a session at the NAIC’s summer meeting in Louisville, Ky.
