HHS issued final rules for health insurance exchanges, including rules for advance payments of premium tax credits, reduced cost-sharing for lower-income enrollees and premium stabilization programs. The rules establish time frames for issuing refunds if advance payments of premium tax credits or cost-sharing reductions are incorrectly applied, or if an enrollee is incorrectly assigned to a standard plan without cost-sharing reductions. The rules also cover oversight of insurers and state exchanges.
