Academy Submits Comments on Regulatory Approach for Essential Health Benefits

The Academy submitted comments in response to the Department of Health and Human Services' request for comments on the specific regulatory approach outlined in the December 16, 2011, "Essential Health Benefits Bulletin." The Academy advocated for RD-provided nutrition services to be included as essential benefits within four of the 10 benefit categories, and suggested ways to improve the regulatory approach to ensure essential coverage was equitably balanced with affordability.

Read the Academy's comments.

Essential Health Benefits are benefits that the Affordable Care Act mandates must be covered in non-grandfathered plans in individual and small group markets, both inside and outside of exchanges, Medicaid benchmark and benchmark-equivalent and basic health programs beginning in 2014. HHS specifically sought comments on the limited question of its approach to use a reference plan based on employer-sponsored coverage in the marketplace today, supplemented as necessary to ensure that plans cover each of the 10 statutory categories of EHB.
