Congress passed, and President Trump signed a spending package that extended the HCTC for one year. 

All eligible Trust members will benefit from the extension of the HCTC.  (Read more under your industry HCTC Information tab)

Your January premiums payments are now due by January 25th and will be paid directly to Benistar, at 100% of the cost of the insurance you have elected to enroll in effective January 01, 2020. 

The Monthly (AMP) program will not begin until the IRS/HCTC announces they will be accepting the 27.5%

payments again. Until that time, you will make a 100% payment to Benistar directly and will take the 72.5% cost

you paid for the months paying 100% off of your income tax next year.

We believe you will be paying 100% for at least 1 month and maybe 2 however, we cannot promise when the

Monthly HCTC program will begin.

The IRS/HCTC program will not accept the Newly completed 13441-A forms sent to them from the plan

administrator Benistar until they Re-Open the program department on January 15, 2020. Don’t send your

forms directly to the IRS/HCTC Program, Benistar will be processing your newly completed 13441-A forms and

sending them to the IRS/HCTC program for you.

You must continue to pay Benistar 100% of the cost of your premium each month until you are notified by the 
IRS/HCTC program that you have been re-enrolled into the program and they have the correct rate and plan you
are enrolled in on the 13441-A document, effective for your start date into the monthly program. 

You must complete and submit to Benistar ASAP, a Newly Completed 13441-A FORM for each individual  enrolled as a “Single” in the plan. A “Family” will only need to complete (1) 13441-A form for their Family.

Benistar will be providing all 13441-A forms and documentation required they have received from plan 
participants BEFORE January 15, 2020, to the IRS/HCTC program on January 15, 2020, once the program
is restarted.  

Once Benistar sends the necessary documents required and the IRS/HCTC program processes the documents, 
this will trigger the IRS/HCTC program to then send you the necessary re-enrollment letter from the IRS/HCTC
program and Benistar to mail you your yearly voucher payment packet.

The Monthly (AMP) program will not begin until the IRS/HCTC announces they will be accepting the 27.5%

payments again. Until that time, you will make a 100% payment to Benistar directly and will take the 72.5% cost

you paid for the months paying 100% off of your income tax next year.

If you already have a HCTC PIN NUMBER from being enrolled in 2019, you will be using the same PIN 
Number in 2020. 

It is important to note that if you do not complete the 13441-A form and email or fax it to Benistar at the 
following contact info (fax) 1-860-408-7025 (email) memelig@benistar.com in a timely manner, your 
enrollment into the monthly program may be delayed and you may be required to continue paying 100% of the
cost of your insurance plan until you have completed the steps required and received the letter from the 
IRS/HCTC program stating you have been re-entered into HCTC monthly program.

Keep in mind, the plan cost information you provide on the 13441-A form may be different from what you elected for a plan you chose to enroll in for the month of January, prior to the reauthorization of the HCTC program, at 100% cost of the premium for your January payment.
