- Full Report:
GAO reviewed the Department of Health and Human Services's (HHS) new rule on Early Retiree Reinsurance Program. GAO found that (1) the interim final rule with comment period implements the Early Retiree Reinsurance Program, which was established by section 1102 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act; the program provides reimbursement to participating employment-based plans for a portion of the cost of health benefits for early retirees and their spouses, surviving spouses and dependents; and (2) HHS complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
