Medigap Policies Exempted from Proposed Rate Review Rulemaking by Health and Human Services (HHS)

In my prior blog post, I linked to HHS’ Proposed Rule-making on Individual and Small Group Health Insurance Rate reviews.  HHS has excluded Medicare Supplement (or Medigap) policies from this regulation.  HHS has said that it intends to look at rate increases on Medicare Supplement policies in the future, but for now, the current system of state review for increases will stay intact.

The story was covered by Fox News here and also by Bret Baier in a Special Report.
