HCTC Legislation Introduced by U.S. Congressmen Turner and Ryan

February 23, 2015

Our previous posting covered the press release issued by Senators Rob Portman and Sherrod Brown indicating legislation they introduced in support of reinstating the Health Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC).  That press release referenced similar legislation introduced by Congressmen Mike Turner and Tim Ryan. Posted below is the press release announcing that action.

These bills are being offered to help elevate the conversation among legislators about the need to reinstate the HCTC.  We continue to believe it is most likely that these bills will become part of trade-related legislation being considered.

Updates on activities surrounding reinstating the HCTC will continue to be posted on this VEBA-BT website.

UPDATE #2--Important Information about Your BCBSM Coverage: Anthem Data Security Breach

How to Access & Sign Up For Identity Theft Repair & Credit Monitoring Services

You have likely heard the nationwide news reports that Anthem Insurance Company has been the target of a sophisticated external cyber attack, which allowed hackers to have unauthorized access to its IT system and the user data stored within. Although Anthem is not the carrier for any coverage offered through the DSRA-BT, we have been advised that our members enrolled in medical, dental or vision through BCBSM could potentially be impacted. The data accessed includes personal information such as names, addresses, birthdays, and Social Security numbers.

Anthem is working with AllClear ID, a leading and trusted identity protection provider, to offer 24 months of identity theft repair and credit monitoring services to current or former members of an affected Anthem plan dating back to 2004.

This includes customers of Anthem, Inc. companies Amerigroup, Anthem and Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield companies, Caremore, Unicare and HealthLink. Additionally, customers of Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies who used their Blue Cross and Blue Shield insurance in one of fourteen states where Anthem, Inc. operates may be impacted and are also eligible: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

For additional protection, and at no cost, you may also enroll immediately in the AllClear PRO service at any time during the 24 month coverage period. This service includes credit monitoring and an identity theft insurance policy. Please keep in mind that family members covered under your insurance plan are most likely at risk also and are included in this identity theft services coverage. Please enroll at https://anthem.allclearid.com/.

Full details can be found at AnthemFacts.com. We strongly encourage you to visit this site to review the latest information including FAQ’s. BCBSM is still 1 to 2 weeks away from mailing letters to those affected.

AllClear ID is ready and standing by to assist you if you need identity repair assistance. This service is automatically available to you with no enrollment required. If a problem arises, simply call 877-263-7995 and a dedicated investigator will do the work to recover financial losses, restore your credit, and make sure your identity is returned to its proper condition. Call centers are open Monday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. ET. From Monday, Feb. 16 to Friday, Feb. 20, the call center will be open extended hours from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. ET.

Those without Internet access or who prefer assistance via telephone can call 877-263-7995. For additional information regarding your protections, please visit: https://anthem.allclearid.com/faqs.

HCTC Legislation Introduced

On Friday, February 13, 2015, U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) introduced a bill to extend the Health Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC). Additionally, Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH)  and Tim Ryan (D-OH) introduced a similar bill in the House. A press release announcing this action follows.

The DSRA HCTC Committee is working with all its legislative contacts to garner support for these two bills.  While nothing is a guarantee in the legislative process, especially timing, we appreciate these efforts and are encouraged that HCTC is being given this attention.  We will post more information about the next steps for these two pieces of legislation as soon as we know it.
