Updates to myETF Benefits
On the evening of March 26, 2014, ETF will deploy the following
updates to myETF Benefits:
ETF has completed a project to better manage coordination of benefits
for other health insurance and Medicare enrollment by entering into
a Voluntary Data Sharing Agreement (VDSA), which allows us to share
our group health insurance eligibility data with the Centers for
Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). CMS in turn provides us
with the Medicare eligibility and enrollment information for our
members. In January, ETF began sharing with CMS group health insurance
eligibility and enrollment information for all state and WPE members.
New Medicare information received via the VDSA from CMS is now
being updated and/or added to the Other Health Insurance section
of the Health Insurance Enrollment Covered Individual screen in
Employers and subscribers can expect to see the following information
in the required fields:
In addition, if you or a member are making updates within myETFBenefits,
the system will now require a "yes” or “no”
response to questions about the member’s, and their dependents’,
other health insurance coverage and Medicare eligibility/enrollment.
Please see the PDF here
for screen shots of the changes listed above.
