Obama Administration Plans To Patch Coverage Holes Caused by Insurers’ Exit

Officials worried that the exit of health plans from the ACA will lead to the exit of possible enrollees who want the same coverage they’ve been getting, have come up with what the Associated Press is calling a backstop. The idea is to steer those consumers to health plans that continue to operate on the ACA exchanges.

“It also calls for reaching consumers with a constant stream of reminders as the health law’s 2017 sign-up season goes into full swing…. The administration says consumers have the last word as far as accepting any ‘alternate’ plan they’re offered.” the AP reports.
