I Am Essential Comments on Draft 2017 Letter to Issuers in the Federally-facilitated Marketplaces
Below are the comments from the I Am Essential coalition on the Draft 2017 Letter to Issuers in the Federally-facilitated Marketplaces. In the coalition's letter, we thank CMS for requiring QHPs to include many important patient protections and reminders that plans cannot discriminate against beneficiaries, especially those with serious health needs. However, we reiterate the need for CMS and the states to actually enforce these patient protections and call out discriminatory plan design.
Also, below is the I Am Essential press release on the letter.
