Our members have long supported an approach to health care and coverage that brings as many people as possible into the system. Broad coverage improves the availability and affordability of health insurance coverage options. While the challenges in the individual market remain significant, we are strong believers in private-sector solutions. We have an opportunity to improve the individual market for years to come, so that consumers have access to quality and affordable coverage.
We commend the Administration’s actions earlier this year to reduce regulatory burdens, promote a more stable individual market, provide greater flexibility to states, and promote consumer choice. AHIP and its member health plans support these goals and are pleased to submit additional recommendations to aid in achieving a competitive and stable individual insurance market.
