The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has eliminated the need for certificates of creditable coverage (a.k.a. HIPAA notices) as of this year. These notices detailed the amount of time a person was covered under a health plan, and their primary purpose was to reduce or eliminate pre-existing condition waiting periods when someone was changing from one health plan to another.
