Playing Dice with the State Marketplaces: CMS' Proposed Market Stabilization Rule (March 22nd)
In mid-February CMS published a proposed rule intended to "stabilize" the state insurance marketplaces. This essay, posted on The Health Care Blog last Wednesday, is my critique of the proposed. What's actually amazing about the proposed is CMS admits the proposed changes have a 50-50 chance of succeeding, i.e., CMS summarizes the proposed changes by stating "on the one hand" the proposed changes may work, "on the other hand" they may not. Imagine if this was the standard for drug approvals?
The essay was originally titled, "Playing Dice with the State Marketplaces: The Administration's Admittedly Ambiguous Market Stabilization Proposed Rule." The editor changed the titled.
