Under federal law, group health plans and health insurance issuers offering group health insurance
coverage generally may not restrict benefits for any hospital length of stay in connection with childbirth
for the mother or newborn child to less than 48 hours following a vaginal delivery, or less than 96 hours
following a delivery by cesarean section. However, the plan or issuer may pay for a shorter stay if the
attending provider (e.g., your physician, nurse midwife, or physician assistant), after consultation with the
mother, discharges the mother or newborn earlier.
Also, under federal law, plans and issuers may not set the level of benefits or out-of-pocket costs so that
any later portion of the 48-hour (or 96-hour) stay is treated in a manner less favorable to the mother or
newborn than any earlier portion of the stay.
In addition, a plan or issuer may not, under federal law, require that a physician or other health care
provider obtain authorization for prescribing a length of stay of up to 48 hours (or 96 hours). However, to
use certain providers or facilities, or to reduce your out-of-pocket costs, you may be required to obtain
precertification. For information on precertification, contact your Claims Administrator.

LA NULIDAD COMO MEDIO DE CONTROL EN LA LEY 1.437 DE 2011 ¿UNA NUEVA INCONSTITUCIONALIDAD? DR. NESTOR RAUL SANCHEZ BAPTISTA Fecha de recepción: 27 de Abril de 2011 – Fecha de aceptación: 1 de junio de 2011 El artículo 137 de la Ley 1.437 de 2011 establece que la nulidad, como medio de control judicial contra los actos administrativos, procede contra los de carácter general y, excepcionalmente, contra ciertos y determinados actos de naturaleza particular y concreta, plasmando así en la ley lo que venía sosteniéndose en la jurisprudencia del Consejo de Estado colombiano, y modificando el postulado general establecido en el artículo 84 del CCA, según el cual la nulidad procede contra todos los actos administrativos definitivos, generales o particulares. Tal concepción jurisprudencial fue considerada contraria a la Constitución Política por la Corte Constitucional con la sentencia C-426 de 2002, en la medida en que era restrictiva del derecho de acceso a la justicia al contener limitaciones no establecidas en la ley. Ahora que fue incorporada a la ley surge el interrogante de si tal inconstitucionalidad fue superada, dado que en los considerandos de aquella se enfatizó en la estrecha relación existente entre la acción de nulidad y el principio de legalidad, para la salvaguarda de la integridad del ordenamiento jurídico sin limitaciones que se consideran constitucionalmente ilegítimas, desproporcionadas e irrazonables. Palabras Claves: Nulidad de actos administrativos, medios de control, guarda de la integridad del ordenamiento, derecho de acceso a la justicia, restricciones legales, inconstitucionalidad. Abstract
