‘Unreasonable’ Rate Increase Rule Proposal Scrutinized
Health Leaders Media

Expect states and the federal government to begin taking a harder look at healthcare premium rate increases as part of the Accountable Care Act.

The Department of Health and Human Services issued a proposed rule in December, which defines what the agency considers to be “unreasonable” premium increases. If approved, the rule will set in motion the annual process that states and the federal government will follow in their review of premium increase proposals for the individual and small group markets.
