HHS Extends Transition Policy For Non-ACA Compliant Health Plans

On Feb. 23, 2017, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) extended an existing transition policy for certain health plans that do not comply with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for an additional year,  to policy years beginning on or before Oct. 1, 2018.
