IOM Details Essential Health Benefits, Emphasizes Cost

Margaret Dick Tocknell, for HealthLeaders Media , October 7, 2011

Stakeholders began weighing in on the IOM report Thursday.

America's Health Insurance Plans CEO Karen Ignagni said she is encouraged by the report's attention to balancing affordability and coverage. "We agree that this balance is critical to ensuring that individuals, working families and small employers can afford health insurance. The recommendation that the initial EHB package reflect the scope of benefits and design provided under a typical small employer plan is an important step toward maintaining affordability."

The final rule on essential benefits is expected in 2012.
