MIDLOTHIAN, Va., Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement written by Mark Hobraczk on behalf of PSI:
In this week's Patient Services, Inc. (PSI) Health Reform Update, conservative groups lose their second court battle seeking to block Affordable Care Act premium subsidies for consumers in federally-facilitated Marketplaces while several Republican lawmakers seek probes into how three state-based Marketplaces continue to have little or no online enrollment capability.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services may have to scale back controversial new limits on Medicare Part D drug plans after both Republicans and Democrats fret over having to explain them to constituents during an election year.
An Avalere Health study confirms that despite new out-of-pocket limits under the ACA, specialty tier coinsurance remains a barrier to access for Marketplace consumers relying on high-cost prescription drugs. Several state lawmakers propose even lower drug cost-sharing limits.
The novel Medicaid expansion alternative in Arkansas barely survives a repeal effort, while Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Utah, and Virginia struggle to find consensus on any expansion alternative.
