On April 20, 2016, the U.S. Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Treasury issued a set of Frequently Asked Questions (“FAQs”) addressing certain provisions under the Affordable Care Act, the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (“MHPAEA”), and the Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act of 1998 (“WHCRA”). The FAQs provide guidance on several topics, including coverage of colonoscopies and contraceptives, rescissions of coverage, disclosures required for claims related to out-of-network emergency services, coverage for individuals participating in approved clinical trials, reference-based pricing, various topics related to the MHPAEA, and coverage under the WHCRA.
