Stop, Look & Listen: Railroad Retirement Benefits Q&A

Answers are provided by Robert S. Kaufman

Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010

(Posted January 27, 2011)

Question 796: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 created a temporary reinsurance program for sponsors of employment-based health plans that provide retiree health benefits to retirees who are over age 55 and not yet eligible for Medicare. This program, the Early Retirement Reinsurance Program, was approved in June 2010. Will there be any reduction in the medical premiums for early retirees as a result of this temporary program?

Answer: The Department of Health & Human Services is responsible for implementing PPACA.

Within the Department, the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is the best place to start. Their toll free number is: (800) 633-4227.
