Affordable Care Act FAQs: Cost-Sharing Limitations and Provider Non-Discrimination

The DOL recently released a new set of Frequently Asked Questions (“FAQs“) related to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (the “ACA“). In these FAQs, the DOL clarified that (1) the self-only annual limitation on cost sharing applies to each individual covered under family coverage and (2) this embedded deductible must be applied beginning with the 2016 plan year. ┬áThe FAQs also state that the ACA’s prohibition of discrimination against health care providers who are acting within the scope of their license or certification will not be enforced against a group health plan or health insurance issuer so long as the plan or issuer is applying a good faith, reasonable interpretation of the ACA’s nondiscrimination requirement. The FAQs are available here.
