  • AMSA Speaks to HHS on Essential Health Benefits

    Colin McCluney

    Education & Advocacy Fellow

    Hello fellow AMSAns! On Tuesday, AMSA was invited to give comments to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on the process and criteria for defining the Essential Health Benefits (EHB) to be covered by plans in the insurance exchanges established by the ACA. I had the privilege to offer remarks on behalf of AMSA based on our Preamble, Purposes and Principles (or PPP). The PPP is the Association’s guiding document as approved by our members through the House of Delegates (HOD). You can download the PPP online and learn more about submitting resolutions to the HOD if you feel that something is missing.

    During the listening session, I was able to speak from the podium and gave these brief remarks. This is the first step of our involvement in the process of defining EHBs – additional opportunities for comment will take place after HHS issues its proposed rules. I look forward to continuing to participate in this and will be sure to keep you informed of the progress!

    If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me!
