Individuals and small groups that now have PPACA coverage can’t flee back to transitional coverage.
Officials at the Center for Consumer Information & Insurance Oversight rendered that verdict in a new batch of answers to questions about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
CCIIO officials included answers to several questions about “transitional policy extension” rules.
Many PPACA coverage rules originally were supposed to apply to all major medical coverage in effect on or after Jan. 1, 2014.
In late 2013 and early this year, HHS used guidance and regulations to let some holders of health coverage issued before PPACA took effect keep the coverage for as long as two extra years.
One question involves individuals and small employers that now have PPACA-compliant plans.
Can the policyholder have the 2013 plan reinstated and get the transitional policy relief?
