Federal regulators are asking members of the public for comments on how the government should implement the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act medical loss ratio and premium review provisions.
The Internal Revenue Service, the Employee Benefits Security Administration and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will join Wednesday to publish a request for comments on the PPACA minimum medical loss ratio provisions in the Federal Register.
CMS will published another request for comments Wednesday on the PPACA premium review process provisions, according to the Office of the Federal Register.
Comments are due May 14.
The IRS, EBSA and CMS say they are especially interested in comments from commenters with actual experience with minimum medical loss ratio standards, ideas about definitions and calculation methods, and ideas about whether and how insurer data should be “aggregated,” or combined, at the policy, group, plan type, line-of-business, carrier and state levels.
