Document Excerpt

 Proposed changes to the regulations regarding the summary of benefits and coverage (SBC) and uniform glossary for group health plans and health insurance coverage in the group and individual markets are being released today by the Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and the Treasury (collectively, the Departments). Today’s proposed regulations would amend the final regulations published on February 14, 2012 (2012 final regulations) and includes revisions to the templates, instruction guides, uniform glossary, and other supporting materials for compliance with the regulations. The proposed amendments to the 2012 final regulations and additional materials are based on questions and feedback the Departments have received from stakeholders, including consumers, the insurance industry, states, and employers. These proposed regulations are designed to improve consumers’ access to important plan information so that they can make informed choices when shopping for and renewing coverage, as well as to provide clarifications that will make it easier for health insurance issuers and group health plans to comply with providing this information.
