|Request by EBSA for Information to Help in Planning Federal External Review Process of Health Plan Denials|
Employee Benefits Security Administration [EBSA], U.S. Department of Labor [DOL]
Nov. 17, 2010
3 pages. Excerpt: This notice is a request for information (RFI) to gain market analysis information in advance of one or more future Requests for Proposals (RFP). On July 23, 2010, the Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and the Treasury published interim final regulations regarding, among other things, procedures for external review of health plan denials. The regulations include a provision for a Federal external review process in instances where there is no applicable State process. This RFI solicits information that will enable the Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Labor (DOL) to conduct a market analysis and assist the Departments in planning and developing the Federal external review process. HHS and/or DOL may contract for services required to fulfill the statutory and regulatory requirements of the Federal external review process established under section 2719 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended by the Affordable Care Act, and its implementing regulations.
