HHS to Stop Accepting ERRP Applications

April 12, 2011
The HHS announced that it will no longer accept applications for the Early Retiree Reinsurance Program (ERRP) after May 5, 2011. PPACA created ERRP as a temporary program to provide reimbursement for a portion of the costs of providing health coverage to early retirees and their eligible dependents. HHS announced that because the funding appropriated to ERRP is expected to be depleted, HHS will not process ERRP applications received after May 5, 2011. The guidance clarifies that the application must be received by the ERRP?ÇÖs intake program by the deadline; an application postmarked by the May 5 deadline is not sufficient. A copy of the guidance is available here.
