Attorney Kara Morse authored an article for American Health Lawyers Association’s AHLA Weekly titled “CMS Issues Proposed ACA Insurance Market Stabilization Rule.” The article discusses a Proposed Rule issued by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which is part of the new administration’s plan “to reverse the harmful effects” of the Affordable Care Act. 

The Proposed Rule is meant to provide market stabilization measures and certainty around the future of state exchanges—by discouraging adverse selection and by reducing the federal regulatory burden on insurers to promote their participation on the exchanges. 

Morse says that insurers are facing a time of uncertainty in the individual and small group insurance market. “Rising costs and unstable risk pools have caused some issuers to struggle to maintain their plans on the health insurance exchanges,” she writes. Calling the proposal “modest”, she noted that the Proposed Rule has garnered only lukewarm support from the insurance industry while drawing sharp criticism from consumer groups.
