Fact Sheet on Final Preventive Services Rule

HHS has issued its Fact Sheet on the final regulations on coverage of preventive services.

Document Excerpt

The rules also finalize the preventive services interim final rules from 2010 with few changes, such as standards to ensure that when a recommendation or guideline for a preventive service is downgraded in the middle of a plan year, group health plans and insurers generally must continue to cover the preventive service without cost sharing through the end of the plan year, except in certain limited instances related to, for example, safety concerns.
