On June 18, 2020, Insurance Commissioner Mulready amended LH Bulletin No. 2020-02, to make clear that provisions of previous versions of the bulletin will be rescinded on June 30, 2020, save for the provision that encourages the use of in-network telehealth and telemedicine services and encourage health insurers and entities to expand their networks of providers and facilities to perform telemedicine services.
The following provisions will not expire until the governor’s Executive Order No. 2020-20 (as amended) is withdrawn:
The extended grace periods provided to insureds under the original bulletin shall be allowed to expire upon reaching the end of the extension.
Finally, the suspension of underwriting rules related to minimum group participation requirements shall continue through December 31, 2020.
Employers with plans regulated by the state should be aware of these extensions.
