Insurers striving to implement reform: AHIP
Modern Healthcare

Insurers are under pressure to successfully implement the new health reform law, Karen Ignagni, president and CEO of America’s Health Insurance Plans, said during a briefing with reporters in Washington. AHIP has never been a proponent of the new law, but some of the largest insurers in recent months have taken measures to implement certain required provisions ahead of schedule, such as ending the practice of retroactively canceling individuals’ policies after they fall ill and allowing young adults up to age 26 to stay on their parents’ health insurance policies.
