Proposal limits waiting period for health insurance
Modern Healthcare

Employers who offer health insurance coverage to their employees must offer that benefit no more than 90 days after those employees start working, according to a proposed rule that implements part of the healthcare reform law.

Before the Patient Protection and Affordable Act, employers could have waited longer to provide health insurance coverage to employees, said Michael Rosenbaum, a partner with Drinker, Biddle & Reath in Chicago.
