Final Rule on Essential Health Benefits Released

The Obama administration released the final rule on essential health benefits this week, which sets the parameters for the types of benefits that must be offered by insurers starting in 2014. Kaiser Health News is tracking the news coverage; read capsules from Politico and The Hill, as well as link to the proposed rule here.  A bill will be introduced in the Colorado legislature this session which will allow the Division of Insurance to promulgate rules around essential health benefits, as well as align state law with federal statutes for implementation of healthcare reform.
