HHS releases final continuity-of-care regulations


The Commonwealth Fund discusses here the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services’  final regulations for plans sold on the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) health-insurance marketplaces. “The rules set a wide range of requirements for participating insurers to help smooth the operation of the marketplaces and improve the consumer experience,” the fund’s Web site says.
