How are preexisting conditions limited for groups of 5 or fewer eligible employees?

A health benefits plan issued to a small employer with five or fewer eligible employees, as determined on the effective date of the plan and on each subsequent policy anniversary, may contain preexisting condition exclusion. However, a preexisting condition exclusion shall not exclude coverage for a period of more than 180 days following the enrollment date, and shall relate to conditions, whether physical or mental, manifesting themselves during the six months immediately preceding the enrollment date of the enrollee and for which medical advice, diagnosis, care or treatment was recommended or received during the six months immediately preceding the enrollment date.
