NAHU’s Marcy M. Buckner and Chris Hartmann join this week’s podcast to discuss the recently released final rule from CMS resuming the risk-adjustment program. CMS’s prior decision to halt the risk-adjustment program earlier this month (citing a federal judge’s decision in a New Mexico lawsuit) caught everyone off guard, so we discuss the impact that this final rule and resuming the program will have on stabilizing the individual and small-group markets. The podcast also discusses NAHU’s 2018 August recess talking points, as well as specific topics to keep in mind when you are meeting with your legislator’s in-district this summer.
