Member Premium APTC Reconciliation

As member premium and Advanced Premium Tax Credit (APTC) reconciliation payments are paid, and claims are processed, reconciliation challenges continue to be a focus due to the complexity and volume of information being processed.

Potential challenges with this end-to-end process include:

  • Duplicate, missing and inaccurate member information on incoming 834s
  • Membership information is out of sync, impacting monthly tracking
  • An 820 process is not in place, thus not providing full member-level visibility and reconciliation in the interim
  • Missing, duplicate, or inaccurate member invoices being sent
  • Inaccurate or delayed member and subsidy payments
  • Received payment versus expected payment discrepancies
  • Monthly adjustments may not reconcile with outstanding balances

The issues noted, if not reconciled and tracked, put payers at risk of being out of compliance, in addition to incurring financial loss and leading to customer dissatisfaction. Considering the number of systems involved with processing enrollment data, achieving data quality with the information on the exchanges will be crucial for ensuring customer satisfaction. The ability to monitor and report on this data will allow payers to set rates and apply for risk mitigation funding from the federal government. Healthcare payers need to consider how they will ensure this data remains accurate and reliable so company revenue is enhanced.
