New Regulations released on Individual Mandate

Federal regulators released new regulations last week that address perhaps the most controversial provision of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – the individual mandate.

Other highlights include:

  • A special legislative session in California was highlighted by a proposal to expand Medi-Cal.

  • The New Jersey House passed a prescription drug bill that makes it harder for insurers and pharmacy benefit managers to use common patient safety and cost-protection techniques.
