IMPORTANT: Essential Health Benefits

On November 26, 2012, the Obama Administration published a series of proposed rules implementing many of the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) most important insurance reforms, including Health Insurance Market Rules and Rate Review, Nondiscriminatory Wellness Programs in Group Health Plans, and Standards Related to Essential Health Benefits, Actuarial Value, and Accreditation.

There is a 30 day comment period after which the final rule will be issued, which may or may not contain changes. BSG will continue to monitor health care reform regulations and guidance.
