ACS CAN Comments on 2025 Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters Rule

January 9, 2024

More than 1.9 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer this year and more than 18 million Americans living today have a history of cancer.[1] For these individuals finding the right doctor is one of the most important factors in their treatment and has a direct bearing on the overall affordability of their care. In general, we support many of the proposals contained in the 2025 NBPP proposed rule and offer comments on the following:

  • Increase State Flexibility in the Use of Income and Resource Disregards for Non-MAGI Populations
  • Election to Operate an Exchange after 2014
  • Additional Required Benefits
  • Initial and Annual Open Enrollment Periods
  • Special Enrollment Periods
  • Establishment of Exchange Network Adequacy Standards
  • Prescription Drug Benefits
