Student Health Insurance Coverage

Welcome Back!

This month’s topic is the Final Regulations of Student Health Insurance…

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has issued final regulations under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to establish how the health care reform law’s requirements apply to student health insurance coverage. The final regulations extend all of the protections provided to enrollees in individual market plans to student health insurance plan enrollees, with several adjustments due to the unique nature of student health plans. Most of the provisions of the final regulations, including those on ACA’s annual limits and preventive services mandate, are effective for policy years beginning on or after July 1, 2012. The regulations’ medical loss ratio provisions apply beginning Jan. 1, 2013 to health insurance issuers offering student health insurance coverage.  These are the basic facts of the final regulations, but if you want more information, click the links below!
