CCF and Mississippi Center for Justice Issued Comments on HHS’ 2011 Essential Health Benefit Bulletin

The Georgetown Center for Children and Families (CCF) drafted model comments for state and national advocates to work from as they respond to HHS’ December 2011 EHB bulletin. The comments stress the importance of: (1) ensuring children’s needs are taken into account; (2) defining medical necessity to assure children can access EHBs meaningfully and consistently; (3) limiting insurer flexibility; and (4) assuring a transparent process of benchmark selection and updating. The Mississippi Center for Justice based their comments on CCF’s model.
