Insurers Sound Off on Recent Proposed Rules From CMS

While CMS has been busy issuing health care regulations in the Trump administration’s final days, industry trade groups have likewise been churning out comment letters that detail their position on those proposals.

One of the proposed rules in question is the 2022 Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters (NBPP), the annual omnibus regulation that governs the Affordable Care Act (ACA) exchanges. Released on Nov. 25, the lengthy rule raised eyebrows by proposing to permit states to abandon a centralized health insurance exchange in favor of relying on private entities like brokers, agents and insurers (HPW 12/4/20, p. 1).
