The Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and the Treasury have issued proposed rules to clarify options for individuals seeking health insurance coverage (http://go.cms.gov/1B8QP29). The proposal would require all health plans and issuers to provide a standardized brief summary of what a particular health insurance policy or employer plan covers—a Summary of Benefits and Coverage—so that consumers can make meaningful comparisons of different plans and can easily understand what they cover.
