Stakeholder Perspectives and Feedback on Health Equity in the 2023 Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters

In January, CMS issued its proposed annual Notice of Benefits and Payment Parameters (NBPP), which updates regulations governing the ACA marketplaces. CMS requested and received public comments on the proposed rule, and researchers at CHIR reviewed and summarized a sample of those comments from consumer advocates, insurers and brokers, and state insurance departments and marketplaces. The notice of proposed rulemaking also requested feedback from stakeholders on ways for CMS to advance health equity. Georgetown’s Center on Health Insurance Reforms reviewed comments from states, insurers, and consumer advocates to see how they responded and summarized the findings in a new blog post.
