The Health 202: Insurers make their pitch on how to rescue health-care system

09/12/2017 | The Washington Post

Insurers and other stakeholders are testifying in front of the Senate HELP Committee this week and are asking for increased certainty in the market. Susan Turney, CEO of Marshfield Clinic Health System, said companies must start making decisions about where and who they will cover as early as two years before the start of a plan year. Insurers are seeking funding for CSRs, the extension of a reinsurance program that provides payments to plans with high-cost members and enforcement of the individual mandate.
