Early Retiree Reinsurance Program (ERRP) Application Process in PPACA to end 4/30/11:

On March 31, 2011, CMS issued a notice entitled, “Early Retiree Reinsurance Program.” This notice announces that the ERRP will no longer accept new applicants after April 30, 2011. The ERRP was provided for by section 1102 of the Affordable Care Act (aka PPACA), and was planned to provide early retiree health coverage for enrolling employers through 2014. With 1,300 employers already enrolled in its first year, the ERRP will exhaust its $5 billion in funding earlier than expected. In order to fund the retiree coverage of current enrollees through 2014 it became necessary to close the application period earlier than expected.
