On February 6, 2020, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services published its annual draft rule governing core provisions of the Affordable Care Act, including the operation of the marketplaces, standards for individual and small-group market health plans, and premium stabilization programs. Referred to as the “Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters,” the proposed rule contains several policies with significant implications for state insurance regulation and the operation of the state-based marketplaces. Comments from the public, including state officials, are due by March 2. A detailed overview, identifying areas where states may wish to provide feedback, is available in an article for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s State Health & Value Strategies project.
