ERRP to Stop Accepting New Applications

Effective May 6th, 2011, the Early Retiree Reinsurance Program (ERRP) will no longer accept new ERRP applications. This is consistent with section 1102(f) of the Affordable Care Act that allows this limitation based on the availability of funding. A Federal Register Notice regarding this decision has been released and can be found in the following link: Link Icon.


Any sponsors wishing to apply to the ERRP must submit an application, and the complete application must be received by the ERRP Application Center on or before 5PM ET on May 5, 2011. Any applications received after May 5, 2011, will not be accepted.


Sponsors planning to submit an application to the ERRP should consult the Application Do's and Don'ts and ERRP Application Instructions before completing and submitting the ERRP Application that is currently posted on the ERRP website,


Applications received on or before May 5, 2011 will be processed. If an application, received by the deadline, is missing information or needs clarification from the sponsor in order to complete the processing of an application, the ERRP Center will contact the sponsor and provide a limited amount of time for a response. If a timely response to such a request is not received, the application will be denied. Currently pending incomplete applications as of March 31st must be completed by May 5th or they will not be processed.


This announcement does not impact currently approved applications.
