California Progresses Towards Parity with ACA Waiting Period Rule
E is for ERISA Link to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
July 17, 2014
"[O]nce passed the bill will: [1] permit California-licensed carriers and HMOs to administer employer-imposed eligibility waiting periods so long as they do not exceed the ACA's 90-day limit, and [2] prohibit such carriers and HMOs from imposing any separate, additional affiliation or waiting periods. Pending passage of this bill, it appears that California carriers and HMOs are writing coverage without requiring that employers limit waiting periods to 60 days in accordance with AB 1083 as codified in the California Insurance and Health and Safety Codes. Those provisions went into effect on January 1, 2014 but almost immediately met resistance from brokers and benefit advisors and their clients."
