Late in 2020, the federal government enacted several health care mandates, many of which apply to health insurance. The implementation timeline is relatively short considering many regulations are still being finalized.
Current mandates fall into four categories:
- Consolidated Appropriations Act—aka No Surprise Billing
- Price Transparency—clear accessible pricing information
- Interoperability—a number of data exchange projects
- NACHA Mandate Overview—operating rules for automated payments
We have a full compliance and implementation team staying ahead of the evolving mandates and moving forward as information is available. Most mandates don’t require any action by employer groups; however, we’ll keep you informed by spotlighting a mandate in each issue of News from Blue.
