AMA, others call for action to ensure CSR funding

Join us!

The American Medical Association (AMA) joined organizations that represent health insurers, hospitals, health plan purchasers, and other physicians’ advocacy organizations in signing letters that were sent to President Donald Trump and congressional leaders to “take quick action to ensure CSR (cost sharing reductions) are funded.”

The letters emphasize that, “The most critical action to help stabilize the individual market for 2017 and 2018 is to remove uncertainty about continued funding for [CSR]. Nearly 60 percent of all individuals who purchase coverage via the marketplace – 7 million people – receive assistance to reduce deductibles, co-payments, and/or out-of-pocket limits through CSR payments.”

The letters also stress that, “[It is critical to] stabilize the individual health insurance market. The window is quickly closing to properly price individual insurance products for 2018.”
