The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) filed comments in response to the the 2022 Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters proposed rule. Our comments focused on the following proposed policies:

ACS CAN supports the extension of Colorado's section 1332 reinsurance waiver.

High deductible health plans (HDHPs) and health savings accounts (HSAs) are becoming more common in employer-sponsored insurance and the individual and small group markets.  These types of plans have risks and features must be implemented carefully so they do not harm cancer patients, survivors or those at risk for cancer.

ACS CAN submitted comments on September 16, 2020, to CMS regarding Georgia's 1332 waiver application.

ACS CAN applauds the intent of the proposed rule, which is to provide consumers with information regarding their expected out-of-pocket health care costs for items and services before they receive care.
