Wellness Rules Alert
On May 29, 2013 the Department of Health and Human Services, the Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Labor jointly issued a final rule that addresses how wellness programs must operate under PPACA beginning in 2014. In many respects the final rules carry forward the rules that have been in effect for wellness programs since 2006, and most of the updates that were proposed last November have been adopted.
