IRS-SSA-CMS Data Match Program Information
Beginning in early 2016, many employers received letters from the IRS-SSA-CMS Data Match Program. These letters are addressed to the employer and begin by stating that “Medicare needs your cooperation.” Employers are directed to report information on the IRS/SSA/CMS Data Match Secure Web Site, and the data being requested is often extensive. The reporting is separate and unique from reporting required of applicable large employers under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), and can affect employers of all sizes. In order to assist our clients with the online reporting of information, United Benefit Advisors (UBA) has created a brief instruction guide with decision trees on the reporting process. This guide should be used to supplement the extensive instruction guide provided by the program.
