Visit the Health Care Reform Community on Checkpoint to join the discussion on this development (for Checkpoint subscribers to EBIA’s Health Care Reform manual).

As we went to press with this week’s EBIA Weekly, the DOL, HHS, and IRS jointly issued FAQs addressing a variety of health care reform requirements—including coverage of preventive services and rescission—as well as mental health parity and reconstructive surgery after mastectomy under the Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act.

We will cover this development in next week’s EBIA Weekly. Meanwhile, for more information, see EBIA’s Health Care Reform manual at Sections X.D (“Prohibition on Rescissions”) and XII.C (“Coverage of Preventive Health Services”); see also EBIA’s Group Health Plan Mandates manual at Sections IX (“Mental Health Parity”), XI (“Reconstructive Surgery After Mastectomy”), and XIII.C (“Coverage of Preventive Health Services”).
