The Trump administration pushed back the deadline for insurers to file final rates for 2018 ACA exchange plans in most states until Sept. 5, AHA News reports.
The nearly three-week delay aims to give insurers more time to devise products and prices amid uncertainty surrounding the future of federal cost-sharing reduction payments. CSRs help insurers subsidize the cost of coverage for low-income Americans.
States not allowing payers to modify 2018 rate filings must notify CMS by Sept. 5, according to a CMS memo. Final contracts for insurers participating in the exchanges next year are due Sept. 27, with open enrollment slated for Nov. 1.
