14 Apr '10

The departments of the Treasury, Labor and Health and Human Services have issued a request for public comment on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s requirement for group health plans and health insurance issuers offering group and individual coverage to annually report the medical loss ratio (MLR) to the Secretary of HHS and remit payments to enrollees if the ratio falls below a minimum standard for a given plan year.  Comments are encouraged to address the calculation of MLR and if minimum standards established in the new law compare to existing MLRs in the individual, small group and large group markets.
