On Monday, November 26, 2012 the Department of Health and Human Services ("DHHS") issued proposed rules on: (1) standards related to essential health benefits, actuarial value and accreditation, and (2) health insurance market rules and rate review. The Department of Treasury, the Department of Labor, and DHHS issued combined proposed rules for the incentives of wellness programs. Comments on these proposals must be received no later than December 26, 2012. So those interested in commenting have a short window to examine the three sets of rules.
