Reform Update: Automatic ACA re-enrollment carries caveats
Modern Healthcare

HHS is moving forward with a policy that will allow consumers who got health insurance through the state and federal exchanges to be automatically re-enrolled for 2015, even though some have warned that enrollees could be unwittingly shifted to other plans if their insurers decide to cancel their current coverage. Consumer advocates with Families USA have generally praised the Obama administration’s decision to facilitate re-enrollment, which they say should mitigate problems that arise when patients’ benefits and provider networks fluctuate as they shift from one plan to another.
