ACHP CEO and President Ceci Connolly remarked in The Washington Post that changes in cost-sharing could force ACHP member plans to hike premiums or reconsider staying in the individual market.
HHS indicated that it will fund cost-sharing reduction payments during litigation. But that indication alone isn’t enough guidance for insurers that are preparing their premium rate requests. They need more certainty about future payments in order to decide whether to participate in the individual market exchanges next year.
