Feds draft group plan waiting period, exclusion regs

Federal regulators are trying to keep employers from using long coverage waiting periods to thwart Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) group coverage access expansion goals.

Regulators also are trying to keep employers from coming up with clever ways to disguise coverage limits created to violate PPACA antidiscrimination rules by.

The PPACA waiting period limit rules are now expressed in Public Health Service Act (PHS Act) Section 2708; Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) Section 7010(b)(4); and Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 9801(b)(4).

In the proposed regulations, officials have tried to answer questions employers have asked about treatment of employees with unusual work schedules.
