Gag Clause Attestations and Other Employer Changes

Tuesday, October 24, 2023

On February 23, 2023, the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services and the Treasury issued FAQs on the prohibition of gag clauses under the transparency provisions of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (CAA). These FAQs require health plans and health insurance issuers to submit their first attestation of compliance with the CAA’s prohibition on gag clauses by December 31, 2023.

Plans and issuers must annually submit an attestation of compliance with these requirements. The first attestation is due by December 31, 2023, covering the period beginning December 27, 2020, through the date of attestation. Subsequent attestations, covering the period since the last attestation, are due by December 31 of each following year.

Join us to learn more about these Gag Clause Attestations and other changes facing employers.
