Consumer Groups upset about delay

Consumer Groups Protest Delay Of ACA Out-Of-Pocket Expense Cap.

Kaiser Health News Share to FacebookShare to Twitter (4/10, Appleby) reports that several consumer groups are asking the Obama Administration to reconsider its decision not to enforce the Affordable Care Act provision capping out-of-pocket expenses an insurance plan can ask an individual to pay. Under the ACA, the “out-of-pocket cap…is estimated to be about $6,250 for an individual.” However, groups including the American Cancer Society warned that because of the delay, “insurers and employers may be able to keep offering health plans next year that include out-of-pocket caps for individuals of $12,500 or more.”
