Rehabilitation a part of HHS Finalized Provisions

The APTA recently announced the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) finalized provisions in the Affordable Care Act.  The provision ensures that health plans offered both in individual and small groups must offer a core package of items and services.  Rehabilitation and habilitation services and devices are a part of the essential health benefits (EHB) outlined.

The APTA was very involved in the process and helped define how EHBs should be defined.

Along a similar front, Kaiser Health News recently reported Federal Government will be running new health insurance marketplaces in at least 26 states.
