Can you exclude spouse's from enrolling in the group health plan?
Is an employer permitted to exclude spouses from enrolling/participating in their sponsored group health plan? In other words, only employees and children up to age 26 would be eligible to enroll.
Does ACA/PPACA prohibit this?
Does it depend at all any whether the employers group health plan is self-funded or fully insured? Does it depend on the number of full-time equivalent employees that the employer has? Until 2016 a small group between 2-50 employees while a large group is 51+. Thank you,
