Bookmark and Share

HHS released the final rule on essential health benefits (EHB), actuarial value, and accreditation of qualified health plans. This rule finalizes the state benchmark approach for defining EHB in 2014 and 2015. It also sets forth limits on cost-sharing, allows for a slight leeway – plus or minus 2 percent – in the actuarial value of the metal level requirements, and finalizes the drug coverage requirements in the exchange.
