Aon Hewitt Submits Comments on Reporting of Health Insurance Coverage

On June 11, 2012, Aon Hewitt submitted comments to the Internal Revenue Service (Notice 2012-32) in regards to reporting health insurance coverage as added by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Affordable Care Act). The Notice, published on April 26, 2012, requests comments on Code Section 6055, which requires health insurance issuers, sponsors of self-insured health plans, and government-sponsored health insurance programs that provide minimum essential coverage to file annual returns reporting information for each individual for whom minimum essential coverage is provided.

In the comment letter, Aon Hewitt makes the following recommendations and asks the IRS to consider:

  • Allowing combined return for certain large employers; 
  • Permitting reporting based on available data; and
  • Adopting Summaries of Benefits and Coverage (SBCs) safe harbor for electronic delivery.
