Unified Agenda 1210-AB45

Group Health Plans and Health Insurance Issuers Relating to Internal and External Appeals Processes Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act


The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (the Affordable Care Act) amended title I of ERISA, by adding a new section 715 which encompasses various health reform provisions of the Public Health Service Act. These regulations provide guidance on the rules relating to internal and external appeals processes under the Affordable Care Act.

As mentioned in previous requests, RIN 1210-AB41 was split into additional RINs due to the breadth of issues covered and this is the fifth request in a series relating to the Affordable Care Act.
