Title: Preexisting Condition Exclusions, Lifetime and Annual Limits, Rescissions and Patient Protections Under the Affordable Care Act

Abstract: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (the Affordable Care Act) amended title I of ERISA, by adding a new section 715 which encompasses various health reform provisions of the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act). These regulations provide guidance on the rules prohibiting preexisting condition exclusions and other discrimination based on health status (PHS Act section 2704); prohibition of lifetime and annual income limits (PHS section 2711); the prohibition of rescissions of health coverage after coverage begins (PHS Act section 2712); prohibition on discrimination in favor of highly compensated individuals (PHS section 2716); and patient protections (PHS Act section 2719A). As mentioned in the previous request, RIN 1210-AB41 was split into additional RINS due to the breadth of issues covered and this is the third request in a series relating to the Affordable Care Act.
