|New HHS Rules Will Provide Greater Protections Against Gender Identity Discrimination|
Seyfarth Shaw LLP
Sept. 15, 2015
"[T]he proposed rule only applies to entities receiving federal funds. It remains to be seen how this rule might more directly impact employers that do not receive federal funds. Specifically, these employers might still be impacted if they sponsor a group health plan administered by a TPA that also separately issues policies on the Health Insurance Marketplaces (most major TPAs do). To the extent the employer's plan includes a blanket exclusion for medical costs associated with gender transition services, the TPA may require the employer to remove that exclusion, in light of the restrictions imposed on the TPA by Section 1557."
