Legal Update HeaderOn Oct. 29, 2020, the Departments of Labor (DOL), Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Treasury (Departments) issued a final rule regarding transparency in coverage that imposes new transparency requirements on group health plans and health insurers in the individual and group markets. These provisions only apply to non-grandfathered coverage, including both insured and self-insured group health plan sponsors.

This final rule was issued in response to an executive order issued on June 24, 2019, aimed at improving price and quality transparency in health care.
