CMS issues final Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters for 2020
CMS has issued its Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters for 2020 final rule. The agency also released a fact sheet, the final letter to insurers in the federal marketplace and key dates for calendar year 2019. The rule finalizes a number of policies, including changes to the navigator program, a change in the methodology for calculating subsidies and decreases in the administrative fee health plan issuers pay to the government for operating the exchanges.
HANYS had submitted comments raising concerns about proposed changes that could erode key consumer protections and result in lost coverage. We appreciate that CMS did not include any changes to silver-loading and automatic re-enrollment polices. Contact: Victoria Aufiero
