The Institute of Medicine is expected to release a report Friday detailing exactly how the federal government should go about selecting what health benefits need to be covered by insurance plans in order to get on state exchanges.
The highly anticipated report has insurance companies concerned that HHS will add too many benefits, while consumer groups want as many covered benefits as possible.
Between both of those positions is the difficult balance of giving consumers affordable care that has enough benefits to help keep people healthy. Is it possible to give consumers affordable coverage with generous benefits? If you were at HHS, how would you balance affordable insurance coverage with adequate benefits?
