The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has come out with a big collection of final regulations and a related "interim final rule" to implement many different sections of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA).

The final rule, HHS Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters for 2014 (CMS-9964-F), gives rules dealing with topics such as the nuts and bolts of how new health insurance risk management programs will work, how insurers will go about paying for the programs, and how the new "advanced premium tax credit" (APTC) program will work. 

HHS is expecting insurers to get the APTC payments in the middle of the month, officials said. 

Several commenters wrote to support that provision, officials said.
