Health Leaders Media

The Department of Health and Human Services said Thursday it is making available nearly $200 million in grants to help states combat “unreasonable premium increases” of 10% or more.

HHS said the new money will bolster state programs to improve transparency and thoroughness in the review process for health insurance premium rate hikes, and builds on the $46 million awarded last August to help 45 states and the District of Columbia crack down on unreasonable premium hikes.
