January 2018 portfolio now available
Updated plan rates and highlights and benefit summaries for our bronze, silver, gold and platinum plans are now available on account.kp.org. To see an overview of the 2018 portfolio, be sure to also check out our renewal information page. And to help you and your clients understand changes in cost shares from 2017 to 2018, including child dental, check out our updated plan comparison charts.
Also, to comply with new federal regulations, member level child age bands will change for new individual, family, and small business plans starting January 1, 2018. This change will apply to existing plans upon their renewal, and it may affect rates for members younger than 21.
You can now enroll new groups with January 1, 2018 or later effective dates with our 2018 New Group Application on our forms page. You’ll also find an updated version of our 2018 Plan Add Change Request form there to help your groups make mid-year plan changes. And to ensure that you’re using current versions of all of our forms, download the latest version of our forms matrix.
Our simplified enrollment rules make it easier than ever to sell new small groups. For small businesses with October through January 2018 effective dates:
- Groups don’t need a DE 9C if they have 6 or more subscribers.
- Startup companies only need to provide 4 weeks of payroll.
Use this checklist to avoid many of the most common mistakes that lead to processing delays.
