Keeping You Informed
We’ve developed this quick reference chart to help in your understanding of when various provisions of Health Reform take effect. As you can see, provisions affecting your Group Health Plan (GHP) must be included with your first contract renewal after 9/23/2010. Mandated changes for employers and health insurance carriers concerning coverage requirements and tax implications are slated for 2014.
Locally, Anthem has agreed to immediately begin allowing currently covered dependent children to continue coverage to age 26. Optima Health is studying the regulation and has indicated it will make a decision soon on how it will implement this extension of coverage. In any event, it will become effective on your first renewal following 9/23/2010.
We will continue to keep you updated as guidelines are issued by federal regulators. Please feel free to share this chart with your business associates and friends. Please call or email us with ANY questions.
