From the Government Institute
On February 15, 2017, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the primary agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that administers the ACA, issued a proposed rule that aims to stabilize the health insurance marketplace for 2018. While Congressional leaders will continue to deliberate more comprehensive reforms to the ACA, this rule signals that access to coverage for the millions of marketplace consumers is likely to continue for 2018.
This issue brief provides an overview of the proposed rule and the potential implications for federal and state entities.
