14 Apr '10

The Departments of Health and Human Services has issued a Solicitation for Comments on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s changes to Section 2794 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, which requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services to work with states to establish, monitor and award grants for states’ review of unreasonable insurance premium increases inside and outside state health exchanges. Health insurers are required to submit to the Secretary and state a justification for an unreasonable premium increase prior to the implementation of the increase, and prominently post this information on their web sites.

Written or electronic comments should be submitted by May 14, 2010.
