Just released interim final regulations require health insurers comply with a new set of internal claims and appeals and external review procedures, and they also expand claims procedure rules for ERISA-covered plans.

The new rules establish procedures for claim and appeal reviews, and impose new definitions, timelines, standards of conduct and penalties for failing to follow the rules.

The federal agencies that issued the rules (DOL, HHS, and IRS) say the rules are designed to ensure that claimants receive full, fair, and independent reviews.

This interactive webinar will help you understand all of the changes you need to make and by when, and help you understand the exceptions to the regulations as well.

Learning Points:

* The impact the new rules have on current internal claims review and appeal procedures
* What a “claim” is for purposes of both internal and external review
