Exchange advisory committees reject “any-willing insurer”
Today in a joint meeting of the Health Plan Benefits/Qualifications and Consumer Experience/Outreach committees of the CT Health Insurance Exchange voted against the staff recommendation “that the Exchange not deny any carrier QHP certification on the basis of its approved rates”. The only votes for the staff’s any willing insurer proposal were from Aetna and CT Insurance Dept. representatives. The committees asked staff to come back with a new proposal that includes rate negotiation.
