  Health Insurance Claims Assessment (HICA) Act
Are carriers of Medicare supplemental insurance subject to the assessment under the Health Insurance Claims Assessment (HICA) Act? Should claims paid under Medicare supplemental coverage be included when determining the amount of the assessment that must be paid?
Yes, in both cases. Carriers of Medicare supplemental insurance will be subject to the HICA assessment if they meet the definition of "carrier" in the statute and they do not fall under any of the statute's specific exemptions. MCL 550.1732(a). There is no specific statutory exemption for carriers of Medicare supplemental insurance. These carriers, and claims paid pursuant to their coverage, are included in the assessment.
