On September 11, United States of Care (USofCare) submitted a comment letter in response to a proposed rule by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Pulling insights from our listening work across the country, we strongly commend CMS for the provisions in this rule that will protect consumers seeking quality health care coverage and provide more transparency in the health insurance marketplace.
This proposed rule, entitled “Short-Term, Limited-Duration Insurance; Independent, Noncoordinated Excepted Benefits Coverage; Level-Funded Plan Arrangements; and Tax Treatment of Certain Accident and Health Insurance,” establishes critically needed consumer protections in a market that all-too-often leads people to enroll in plans that aren’t comprehensive and don’t cover what they need.
By establishing these protections and taking much-needed action to ensure people benefit from the quality, affordable health insurance we know they want, this proposed rule would ensure people understand the type of coverage they are enrolling in – including the limitations of the plans they choose.
USofCare is grateful for the opportunity to comment on this proposed rule and encourages its swift adoption.
