Alas! Exchange regulations make their offical debut

Posted July, 11 2011 by arianne

And what a debut it is…all 244 pages of it.  Inside the document you will find:

  •  minimum requirements for state-based exchanges,
  •  minimum requirements for health plans that wish to participate on the exchanges,
  • basic requirements for employers wishing to participate in SHOP exchanges

HHS is accepting public comment on the proposed rules over the next 75 days to learn how the rules can be improved (keep an eye out for HCFANY’s comments!).  To facilitate that public comment process, HHS will convene a series of regional listening sessions and meetings.
