CMS proposes new rules for ACA exchanges, health plans

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services proposed creating standardized health insurance plan options for the federally run marketplace, allowing states to use the sign-up system and counting some out-of-network charges toward out-of-pocket maximums. The proposal also encourages states to set network-adequacy rules or adopt a federal adequacy rule. Bloomberg (11/20), USA Today (11/21)
