The Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA) gag clause prohibition requires issuers and plan sponsors to attest that any agreements they enter with health care providers, third-party administrators or other service providers will not contain language restricting access to cost and quality of care information. Compliance requires submission of a Gag Clause Prohibition Compliance Attestation (GCPCA) by December 31, 2023, from the plan and/or issuer. ￼
Carriers have varying approaches to completing gag attestations. See below for a list of current carrier stances. Bukaty Companies will continue to monitor carrier announcements and update this page as necessary.
- Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas (BCBSKS)
- Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City (Blue KC)
Plan sponsors responsible for completing the attestation on their own behalf can follow Bukaty Companies How-To Guide.
