Yesterday HHS, IRS, and DOL published proposed regulations implementing the waiting period restrictions of the Affordable Care Act. As expected, health plans may not impose a waiting period that is longer than 90 days from the date the individual meets the plan’s eligibility criteria. The proposed regulations apply only to waiting periods based on the lapse of a time period and do not impact other conditions for eligibility. A copy of the proposed regulations can be accessed at here.
