Health Care Reform-February 2014

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires non-grandfathered fully insured health plans to satisfy nondiscrimination rules regarding eligibility to participate in the plan and eligibility for benefits. This requirement was originally set to take effect for plan years beginning on or after Sept. 23, 2010. However, in late 2010, the IRS announced that the nondiscrimination requirement for non-grandfathered fully insured plans is delayed indefinitely, pending the issuance of regulations (or other administrative guidance) on how to comply with the requirement.

The IRS has still not issued regulations (or other administrative guidance) on the ACA’s nondiscrimination requirement for non-grandfathered fully insured plans. Because the nondiscrimination requirement has been delayed indefinitely pending the issuance of regulations, IRS officials have confirmed that the requirement will not be enforced this year.
