HHS has released a final rule requiring the agency to evaluate existing regulations every 10 years to determine if they are subject to review through the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Under the proposal, all rules issued by HHS will expire if the agency fails to evaluate and review them in a timely fashion, but the rule won't apply to HHS regulations released in tandem with other agencies, any product-specific rules by the FDA, annual payment rules such as those for clinicians and hospitals, as well as the Notice of Benefit Payment Parameters for Affordable Care Act exchange plans.
