Purpose/Objective of Rule The purpose of this emergency regulation is to revise the benefits for the basic and standard health benefit plans to incorporate the changes necessary to comply with certain provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, Pub. L. No. 111-148, 124 Stat. 119 (2010) and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, Pub. L. No. 111-152, 124 Stat. 1029 (2010), together referred to as the ?Affordable Care Act? (ACA). The Division hereby finds that the immediate adoption of this emergency regulation is imperatively necessary to comply with a state or federal law, or federal regulation, or for the preservation of public health, safety, or welfare. The Division further finds compliance with the notice and hearing requirements of ?24-4-103, C.R.S., with the exception of those set forth for temporary or emergency rules, would be contrary to the public interest. The Division hereby provides the following reasons for this emergency regulation: A. As of September 23, 2010, the Affordable Care Act requires group and individual health plans to eliminate lifetime maximum limitations. B. As of September 23, 2010, the Affordable Care Act requires group and individual health plans to include certain preventive services without cost-sharing requirements by the covered person. This regulation specifies the requirements for the basic and standard health benefit plans as well as other requirements for small employer carriers.
