Experts say the policy shifts likely to draw the most industry attention are the newly proposed limits on non-standardized exchange plans, which build on regulations that have already drawn the ire of health insurers. However, CMS seems to give a nod to potential pushback by offering up an alternative means of limiting the dizzying array of plan options consumers now face.
