PSI Launches Marketplace Access Project
Friday, May 6, 2016
Patient Services Inc.(PSI) has brought together leading patient advocacy organizations to launch the Marketplace Access Project (MAP), a campaign dedicated to protecting non-profit premium assistance for patients living with chronic and life threatening diseases.
The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has issued federal regulatory guidance that prohibits charitable organizations from helping Americans pay their health insurance premiums. As a result of this, health plans all over the country are denying coverage to patients with expensive, devastating conditions, from their plans.
To address this, MAP is advocating for bipartisan legislation, the Access to Marketplace Insurance Act (H.R. 3742), which could secure non-profit premium assistance for patients enrolled in qualified health plans.
