Obama administration officials have talked repeatedly about the need to get healthy young people to sign up for the new private exchange plans.
But plan issuers that act on that message by discriminating against older consumers or consumers with disabilities could get into trouble with compliance review teams, according to a new batch of QHP compliance review guidance, from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Officials say the new guidance show plan issuers what the feds’ priorities are.
“It is not intended to be an all-inclusive list,” officials say.
The list does not put any limits on the ability of CMS to review compliance with standards left out of the list, officials say.
