Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

The final interim rules implementing key sections of the Affordable Care Act are now officially out in print.

Three agencies – the Internal Revenue Service, the Employee Benefits Security Administration and the Office of Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, an arm of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services – teamed up to develop the interim final rules.

The interim rules will help employers and insurers the anti-rescission provisions, lifetime benefit maximum provisions, annual maximum provisions, physician access provisions, and other provisions of the federal Affordable Care Act, the legislative package that includes the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act.

The federal agencies posted the PPACA interim rules on the Web last week, but they are basing the deadline for public comments on the official Federal Register publication date.

Comments are due Aug. 27.
