In this matching program, OPM provides CMS with monthly data identifying each active federal employee’s status as enrolled in or eligible for coverage under an OPM Health Benefit Plan, and an annual premium spread index file identifying the lowest premium available to a federal employee in each of 32 premium localities. CMS and AEs use the OPM data to verify whether an individual who is applying for or is enrolled in private health insurance coverage under a qualified health plan through a federally-facilitated or state-based health insurance exchange is eligible for coverage under an OPM health benefit plan, for the purpose of determining if the individual is eligible for financial assistance (including an advance tax credit and cost sharing reduction, which are types of insurance affordability programs) in paying for the private coverage. OPM health benefit plans provide minimum essential coverage, and eligibility for such plans precludes eligibility for financial assistance in paying for private coverage. Categories of Individuals The categories of individuals whose information is involved in the matching program are: • Active federal employees; and • Consumers who apply for or are enrolled in a qualified health plan through an exchange established under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and receive determinations of eligibility for insurance affordability programs. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Categories of Records The categories of records used in the matching program are identity information about the above consumers, which are maintained by CMS, and identity information and minimum essential coverage period records about all active federal employees, and annual premium information, maintained by OPM.
