Report: Bipartisan expert group recommends fixes for ACA markets

A bipartisan group of health policy experts released a proposal to stabilize the Affordable Care Act insurance markets, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The group that has been working on a solution to tackle rising premiums and insurers exiting individual insurance markets are presenting the proposal to Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., who heads the Senate Health Committee, and Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., the panel's top Democrat, according to the report.

The experts recommended that Congress officially authorizing cost-sharing reduction payments, which the administration of President Donald Trump can decide to disburse or withhold from insurers, and encourage the use of health savings accounts and innovation waivers for states, which some, such as Alaska, have used to create reinsurance programs.
