Democrat Letter Criticizes Sebelius on Benefits

On December 16, 2011, the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight released the Essential Health Benefits Bulletin (Bulletin) that discusses how to define the essential health benefits package pursuant to section 1302(b) of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). In providing this early guidance, the Secretary is opening a dialogue with states, consumers, and other stakeholders on the important issue of defining the Essential Health Benefits (EHB). We appreciate the opportunity to provide comments in response to the initial direction proposed in the Bulletin and look forward to a more thorough regulatory notice and comment process to finalize the EHB.
