HHS Releases Proposed Regulations for Health Exchanges

Today, HHS released their proposed regulations for how states should run their health insurance exchanges as part of the PPACA. For 75 days, industry groups, consumer advocates, as well as the general public have the opportunity to comment on the draft before the government releases their final regulations. The 200+ pages outlines the rules that must be in place for each exchange, but the question remains: Will states and plans be ready in time?

With an estimated 24 million newly eligibles, we’ve heard of states and health plans scrambling to put together their strategies to comply with the federal law. Your best resource will be to attend the Health Insurance Exchange Congress where health plans, states and the federal government are addressing the opportunities and challenges presented by the implementation of Health Insurance Exchanges. You will learn key strategies from states and plans with existing exchanges and hear firsthand what works and what doesn’t.
