Hide details for C4. Must an entity file reports even if it does not provide medical benefits and therefore has zero covered lives?C4. Must an entity file reports even if it does not provide medical benefits and therefore has zero covered lives?
Yes, but the entity may be eligible to file an Annual or Permanent Zero Covered Lives Report instead of the typical quarterly reports. Please note that if an entity has zero covered lives for one quarter only, then it should file a normal quarterly report with “0” values.

If, however, an entity does not administer medical benefits and therefore has zero covered lives, it should file one of two types of Zero Covered Lives Reports. For example, this type of report would be appropriate for entities such as those administering eye care or dental benefit only plans. If the entity has zero covered lives and will continue to have zero covered lives for the balance of the year, then it should file an Annual Zero Covered Lives Report during the first quarter of the calendar year. No other report will be due until the first quarter of the following calendar year. If the entity has zero covered lives and expects to never have covered lives, it should file a Permanent Zero Covered Lives Report to eliminate the need for further compliance follow up. A guide to Zero Covered Lives Reports is available in the “Filing Guides” section under the “REFERENCE” tab.
Hide details for C5. If an entity files a Permanent Zero Covered Lives Report, but it later has covered lives, what should it do?C5. If an entity files a Permanent Zero Covered Lives Report, but it later has covered lives, what should it do?
Contact Help@AKvaccine.org so that its status can be changed so that it can start reporting regularly, beginning with the first quarter in which it has covered lives.
Hide details for C6. If my company has filed an Annual Zero Covered Lives Report, when should we file our next report?C6. If my company has filed an Annual Zero Covered Lives Report, when should we file our next report?
An Annual Zero Covered Lives Report covers one calendar year. You should plan to file your report again by February 15th of each calendar year.
