The American Council of Life Insurers (ACLI) is clashing with the board of the District of Columbia’s locally based exchange over an exchange funding proposal.
The District of Columbia Health Benefit Exchange Authority, the parent of the DC Health Link exchange, limits access to the exchange to sellers of major medical coverage and dental insurance.
Insurers cannot sell products such as disability insurance, long-term care insurance (LTC) or critical illness insurance through DC Health Link.
But the D.C. exchange board wants to pay for exchange operations with an insurer assessment that would be as broad as possible and could affect insurers that sell products other than major medical products that are classified as accident and sickness company products.
