Affordable Care Act Proposed Rules

CMS and HHS issue proposed guidance implementing the Affordable Care Act rules regarding premiums, guaranteed availability and renewability and other issues.

Document Excerpt

This proposed rule would implement the Affordable Care Act’s policies related to fair health insurance premiums, guaranteed availability, guaranteed renewability, risk pools, and catastrophic plans. The proposed rule would clarify the approach used to enforce the applicable requirements of the Affordable Care Act with respect to health insurance issuers and group health plans that are non-federal governmental plans. This proposed rule would also amend the standards for health insurance issuers and states regarding reporting, utilization, and collection of data under section 2794 of the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act). It also revises the timeline for states to propose state-specific thresholds for review and approval by CMS.
