The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Friday released a final rule with additional policies for health insurance issuers and the Health Insurance Marketplaces for plan years 2022 and beyond. This rule is the third installment of the payment notice for 2022, following part one and part two of the final notice of benefit and payment parameters released earlier this year. In this final rule, CMS adopts a series of additional policies to protect and expand access to health insurance coverage through the exchanges, including extending the annual open enrollment period, expanding the role of navigators, and reversing policies related to section 1332 waivers and direct enrollment pathways. AHA has advocated for many of these changes, which will help to expand access to high-quality, affordable coverage.
