NHeLP Breaks Down Five Key Health Care Reform Standards

In the coming months, CMS will be issuing various pieces of regulations and guidance that will begin to define several key standards in health care reform that impact women’s health.  The Institute of Medicine will also be releasing two important sets of recommendations on some of the standards, which will heavily shape the CMS regulations.  Below you will find a link and text to an issue brief explaining five critical reform standards that every advocate must understand, how they interact with each other, and why they will be crucial to the ability of women and men to access basic preventive care and family planning services in Medicaid and the Exchanges.  NHeLP has been tracking the development of these standards, and will be preparing and circulating comments for CMS to ensure that the final standards preserve and enhance access to benefits for Medicaid and Exchange enrollees.  NHeLP encourages advocates to learn more about these critical standards and be prepared to help us make sure that CMS implements standards that will support robust health care services in Medicaid and Exchanges.

The NHeLP issue brief is available at:
