There has been tremendous confusion surrounding California's 60 day waiting period for health insurance versus the 90 day federal waiting period. On August 15, 2014 Governor Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 1034 which repealed an insurance law (Assembly Bill 1083) that prohibited insurance companies from including waiting periods in excess of 60 days in their group health insurance contracts. The new law, effective January 1, 2015, repeals California's stricter 60-day limit on waiting periods (in accordance with AB1083) and allows employers to follow the federal ACA's 90-day waiting period limitation. Bottom line is this: California employers are permitted to have an additional 30 days of waiting period to work with than previously set by CA law.
