Cigna has announced they will be sending letters out to individuals newly enrolled in their health plans in 2016. The letters requesting verification of identity, residency, and premium payment will be sent to Cigna Individual and Family health plan enrollments regardless of whether the plan was purchased either through a Market Place Exchange or off-exchange directly from Cigna. If Cigna doesn’t receive the requested information within 45 days the health insurance may be cancelled.
If the advance credit payments are more than the amount of the premium tax credit you are allowed, you will add all or a portion of the excess advance credit payments made on your behalf to your tax liability by entering it in the ‘Tax and Credits’ section of your tax return. This will result in either a smaller refund or a larger balance due.
