Modern Healthcare

The CMS is asking the public for advice on how it could make it easier for health insurers to sell coverage across state lines.

The agency issued a request for information on Wednesday for recommendations on eliminating barriers and enhancing insurers’ ability to sell individual insurance coverage from state-to-state. The request, which the CMS said is meant to promote competition and choice for consumers, follows President Donald Trump’s October 2017 executive order on the issue.
