Guidance on health reform law’s Transitional Reinsurance Program requested
Modern Healthcare

The American Benefits Council is asking federal regulators for guidance on the Transitional Reinsurance Program, an obscure but costly healthcare reform law-created program that will require self-funded employers to pay billions of dollars that will partially reimburse commercial insurers writing policies for individuals with very high healthcare costs.

The first-year assessment for the three-year program, which begins in 2014, is expected to be in a range of $60 to $90 per healthcare plan participant.
