Consumers Frustrated By Proliferation Of Narrow Network Plans Under ACA

USA Today (7/26, Appleby) carried a Kaiser Health News report on the “limited networks of” physicians “and hospitals” that some people find under their ACA plans. According to the article, across the country, “regulators and insurance agents are inundated with complaints, while lawmakers are considering rules to ensure consumers’ access to” physicians. To address this issue, “for plans being submitted for sale next year, the federal Department of Health and Human Services said it will more closely scrutinize whether networks are adequate.”
