The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has announced that, due to difficulties for some issuers that have hundreds of documents that must be posted to comply with the requirement for both individual and group coverage, it will not take enforcement action against issuers that make available individual coverage policy or group certificate of coverage documents no later than November 1, 2015. HHS expects all group and individual health insurance issuers to provide an Internet address for the group certificate of coverage or individual policy documents by the date on which the SBC is otherwise required.
