On Feb. 29, 2016, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released its final Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters for 2017. For 2017, the rule increases the ACA’s out-of-pocket maximum to $7,150 for self-only coverage and $14,300 for family coverage.

The rule sets individual coverage open enrollment periods for these benefit years:

  • 2017: Nov. 1, 2016 to Jan. 31, 2017

  • 2018: Nov. 1, 2017 to Jan. 31, 2018

  • 2019 and beyond: Nov. 1 to Dec. 15 of the prior year

The rule also creates a new Exchange model for state-based Exchanges using the federal platform and establishes six standard plan options in the individual federal Exchanges.
