Recent Developments in Healthcare Reform: What Employers Need to Know


The Departments of Health and Human Services (“DHHS”), Labor (“DOL”) and Treasury (“DOT”) recently issued several regulations and commentary to implement portions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“PPACA”) -- the federal healthcare reform law that was passed earlier this year. Faced with hundreds of pages of new regulations, employers have been asking: “What does all of this mean for me?” Greg Kult summarized some of the recent regulatory developments on the following issues:

- Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan Program

- Internal Claims and Appeals and External Review Processes

- Coverage of Preventive Services

- Pre-Existing Condition Exclusions, Lifetime and Annual Limits, Rescissions and Patient Protections

- Grandfathered Health Plans

- Dependent Coverage of Children to Age 26

- Early Retiree Reinsurance Program
