Academy Calls for Specific Nutrition Definitions in Multi-State Health Plans

The Academy recently submitted comments to the federal agency tasked with overseeing multi-state health plans that will be sold in state insurance exchanges. Multi-state health plans are those that provide coverage in more than one state and have different proposed rules than plans limited to a single state.
