On February 11, 2011, HHS published a proposed rule that would establish rules for student health insurance policies offered by college and universities under the ACA. The proposed rule would clarify that such student policies are subject to certain ACA consumer protections, including a prohibition on lifetime dollar caps on coverage and a ban on coverage denials for students under age 19 because of a pre-existing condition. The rule also would set minimum annual dollar limits on essential health benefits (EHBs) and enhance transparency provisions. HHS will accept comments until April 12, 2011.
