    Has there been any further discussion regarding the change to STM coming April 1? Assuming there has not been any I suppose the new law does go into effect.

    IHC asked for another rule review and we should see something out of CMS by the end of the month. UHC (not a typo) is expecting the rule to be overturned, but for 7/1 effective dates and later.

    UHC is allowing clients to be enrolled in 10 month STMs right now in states where 11 months is the limit. Is that 3 month limit on STMs a "law" or just the Obama Administration CMS' interpretation of the healthcare law?

    Apparently a bunch of STM carriers got written notice from a bunch of DOI's saying they are not going to actually enforce the new rule, because it's unconstitutional. Plus, everyone expects it to go away, it's just a matter of when. Trump has bigger things to worry about than repealing that dumb rule.

    Getting lots of offers to contract with Aliera health to sell their new STM plan that will continue to go 11 months. Turns out it is a CHS plan behind the scenes....but a clever come on to make you look. :biggrin:

    I'm working on getting my STM clients who expire this Spring/Summer into an STM that's effective 3.30.2017 and runs through 12.31.2017. (Using IHC Health Solutions.)

    Have to cancel existing and write new ones. I don't think any AHCA major medical will be available b4 this Fall.

    I did UHC stm a couple of days ago in Virginia. The message said that after 3/30, plans longer than 3 months would be allowed ( which is what my client wanted).

    They would be or would not be?

    Is there anything official about this yet? Or is it a huge grey area that will differ from state to state?
