Policy/Worker Guide

Liability Notices from ONE

Summary: This IM is to inform CMEs about notices that the ONE system automatically sends out. The notices include potential financial “liabilities” that some people assume are amounts to be paid. This IM is meant to give CMEs the information they need to inform recipients of the notices about what the notice is.

Draft Transmittal: Service Liability and Fee Notices from ONE

ODDS Questions:
1. Is it clear what the liability amount in the notice is meant to convey?
2. Is there additional information about the notice that would help CMEs to inform individuals about what the notice means?
3. Are there additional questions you can anticipate coming from individuals that can be included in the FAQs?
4. How does this policy directly or indirectly impact priority populations including: federally recognized tribes; racial, ethnic, and culturally-based communities; women; individuals who identify as LGBTQIA+; people with disabilities; religious minorities; veterans; individuals with limited English proficiency; immigrants; or refugees?
5. What specific requirements and/or guidelines would you recommend to eliminate potential harm or disparities related to service equity?
6. Is the summary useful and include the key words that may be necessary to find the transmittal on the ODDS transmittals web page once posted? If not, what key words do you suggest?

Deadline: ODDS will be collecting feedback through December 9, 2021. Please send responses to this proposal to with "Liability Notices from ONE" as the subject line.
