The final rule on wraparound coverage under the Affordable Care Act issued by the Departments of Treasury, Labor, and Health and Human Services (collectively, the "Departments" responsible for implementing the law) allows plan sponsors to provide limited benefits that supplement (or "wrap around") coverage obtained through certain individual health insurance policies. The final rule describes two kinds of limited wraparound benefits: those available only to part-time employees or pre-Medicare eligible retirees enrolled in individual health insurance policies (such as a plan available through a Marketplace) and those that can be used to supplement multi-state plans offered through the public Marketplace. Such limited "wraparound" benefits are considered "excepted benefits," which means they are not be subject to the Affordable Care Act’s group health plan mandates, such as the prohibition on annual dollar limits.
