Expatriate Health Coverage & the ACA

Detailing the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) treatment of expatriate health coverage, Cherry Bekaert Benefits Consulting (“CBBC”) has issued a Health & Benefits Update to guide self-funded or insured group health plans that may be affected by the ACA’s provisions. Entitled “Expatriate Health Coverage & the ACA”, the Update lists what the ACA considers an expatriate health plan, as well as defines expatriates for both inside and outside the U.S. Also covered are the ACA implications, such as expatriate health plans not being subject to annual and lifetime limits, essential health benefits, and the Summary of Benefits and Coverage requirements.
