Biden Admin Officials Defend Standardized Plan Requirements

Although health insurers may not approve of all the recently proposed policies for the Affordable Care Act exchanges — in particular, the reintroduction of standardized plans — the Biden administration is sticking to its guns.

That was one of the main takeaways from a discussion during AHIP’s 2022 National Conference on Health Policy and Government Programs, which took place virtually from March 14 through 17. During a March 15 session, Ellen Montz, Ph.D., who is the deputy administrator and director of CMS’s Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, highlighted three parts of the 2023 Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters (NBPP) that she said will reinforce CMS’s goal of making the exchanges more consumer friendly.
