January 2015

In November 2014, MACPAC asked interested parties to comment on factors affecting how well exchange coverage meets children’s health and development needs, and any changes that should be made.

Specifically, the Commission asked organizations to think through issues and policy options in four areas:

  • affordability of coverage and out-of-pocket costs,
  • adequacy of covered benefits in exchanges,
  • adequacy and appropriateness of provider networks for children, and
  • greatest areas of concern with the transition between coverage sources (Medicaid, CHIP, and exchanges).

Read the staff presentation that briefs Commissioners on issues raised by the 55 respondents to the November request.
