California Repeals 60-Day Limit on Eligibility Waiting Periods, Now Conforms to ACA's 90-Day Rule

[Guidance Overview]
Aug. 19, 2014
"[T]he text of the new statute itself is confusing because it consistently states: 'A health benefit plan for group or individual coverage shall not impose any waiting or affiliation period.' ... In reading the [California Health and Safety Codes], however, it is important to remember that the relevant code sections only apply to California's insurers. Therefore ... the law has been amended to tell California's HMOs and PPOs that they can't apply waiting periods. This frees up employers to set their waiting periods at whatever they deem appropriate as long as it complies with PPACA's 90-day (or maybe 90-days plus a month ... ) limit."
