July 14, 2011
The Departments of Treasury, Labor (the ?Ç£DOL?Ç¥), and Health and Human Services (?Ç£HHS?Ç¥) published amendments to the final regulations that were issued in July 2010 implementing the internal claims and appeals and external review processes required under health reform for non-grandfathered group health plans. In connection with amended regulations, the DOL issued Technical Release No. 2011-02, providing additional guidance and transition relief with respect to various requirements. This new guidance makes several significant changes to the prior interim final regulations issued last July. For additional information on the changes made, click here.
