Health Exchanges and Qualified Health Plans - HPCI and IHBA Involvement
To: HPCI and IHBA members and selected others
HPCI and IHBA were two of twenty-three organizations (23) signing on to a letter to CMS regarding the final rules for establishing exchanges and qualified health plans. These are created under the national Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
Our work through the Consumer Purchaser Alliance is aimed at improving quality and affordability of health care through the use of performance information to inform consumer choice, payment and quality improvement. I hope you will take the time to read at least the two page cover letter attached.
