Health Insurance Claims Assessment (HICA) Act
On September 20, 2011 Governor Snyder signed legislation creating the Health Insurance Claims Assessment (HICA) Act (P.A. 142 of 2011). Beginning January 1, 2012, certain third party administrators, carriers and self-insured entities are required to pay an assessment on certain paid health care claims.
Registration and Payments
All payments under the HICA Act are required to be remitted to the Michigan Department of Treasury (Treasury) by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). EFT payment options include both EFT Credit and EFT Debit. In order to be registered to make payments by EFT, you must complete and submit Form 4926, Electronic Funds Transfer Application – Health Insurance Claims Assessment to Treasury. Please allow at least four weeks for processing your EFT application.
An annual return is required to be e-filed online through an interface with Treasury. E-file your annual return using Treasury's secure Web site, https://treas-secure.state.mi.us/HICA/ .
Note: If you received a notification letter from Treasury, but do not believe you are subject to the HICA, you must submit to Treasury a written letter of explanation detailing why you believe you are not subject to the HICA. Treasury will acknowledge receipt of your letter. A self-determination that you are not subject to HICA is not binding on Treasury and is subject to potential review or audit at a later date. Mail the letter to:
Michigan Department of Treasury
