Standardized Benefit Design Work Group

Under the Affordable Care Act and federal rules, marketplaces have the dual charge of improving informed consumer choice and developing plan certification standards to offer qualified health plans that are in the interest of consumers.

In the 2018 Final Letter to Issuers Participating on Maryland Health Connection, MHBE was tasked to create a work group to help determine the scope of possible standardized benefit design standards, whether it be mandatory or optional, develop draft plans, and provide additional insight. The work group will provide recommendations to the MHBE Board of Trustees for 2019 QHP Certification Standards.

The business of the Standardized Benefit Design Work Group ended on November 9, 2017. The 2017 Standardized Benefit Design Work Group Report may be found at the link below:
