Families USA Comments on Health Care Choice Compacts RFI

Families USA submitted comments on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Request for Information (RFI) concerning Health Care Choice Compacts. This RFI seeks to “facilitate the purchase of health insurance coverage across state lines.” We have long expressed concerns about policies that are designed to allow the sale of coverage across state lines if these policies do not include robust consumer protections.

Our comments urge any future regulations to uphold current protections in the Affordable Care Act regarding health care choice compacts. Our comments also provide additional recommendations for consumer protections for any future proposed regulations regarding health choice compacts.
