Targets could include a [DOL] and [HHS] rule to allow grandfathered group plans to impose higher cost-sharing requirements, a DOL, Treasury and HHS (tri-agency) rule requiring health insurers and self-insured plans to disclose price and cost-sharing information, and an HHS rule to pass along drug company rebates to patients at the point of sale, among others....

"The Biden transition team's list of regulations to be reviewed includes a November 2020 DOL final rule requiring sponsors of retirement plans to evaluate investments based solely on financial risk and return factors except when nonfinancial factors are used as a 'tie breaker' between funds with similar performance expectations....

"Another DOL final rule expected to be reviewed by the new administration addresses fiduciary requirements for professionals who recommend investments to 401(k) plan participants, allowing advisors to receive compensation from mutual fund providers while holding them liable if they fail to act in the best interest of those they advise."
