SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: An employee group health benefit plan or its issuer that imposes a preexisting condition exclusion period must give, as part of any enrollment application, an employee eligible for coverage a general notice that describes the plan’s preexisting condition exclusion— including that the plan will reduce the maximum exclusion period by the length of an employee’s prior creditable coverage. If there are no such enrollment materials, the notice must be provided as soon after a request for enrollment as is reasonably possible. The EBSA has provided sample language for the general notice. See 29 CFR 2590.701–3(c). A plan that uses the alternative method of crediting coverage provided in the applicable regulations must disclose the use of that method at the time of enrollment and describe how the method operates. The plan must also explain that a participant has a right to establish prior creditable coverage through a certificate or other means and to request a certificate of prior coverage from a prior plan or issuer. Finally, a plan or issuer must offer to assist the participant in obtaining a certificate from a prior plan or issuer, if necessary. See 29 CFR 2590.701–4(c)(4). This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1210–0102. The current approval is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2012; however, it should be noted that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For additional information, see the VerDate Mar<15>2010 06:31 Dec 22, 2012 Jkt 229001 related notice published in the Federal Register on June 25, 2012 (77 FR 37920).
