2+: Health Net's Health Care Reform Updates

Oct 25, 2013

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law on March 23, 2010. Health Net continues working on the implementation of this legislation, commonly referred to as “health care reform.” For the purposes of your plan renewal there is some important information you need to know.

Please give beere&purves or Health Net a call if you have questions about how these issues may impact your health plan. Before making any new health care coverage decisions, we recommend you consult with your legal counsel and tax advisors to determine the best approach for your company in light of health care reform.

The topics are listed in alphabetical order. Not all ACA provisions are included. Unless otherwise noted, the changes will apply at your group’s first renewal occurring on or after the effective date specified.
