HHS Unveils Proposed HIX Rules

Cheryl Clark, for HealthLeaders Media, August 15, 2011

Sebelius emphasized other efforts the HHS has put in place to make healthcare insurance more affordable, including grants to states to create structures to review and reject "huge premium hikes that can cause people to lose their coverage." She said the Obama administration has "also mandated that insurers cut their administrative costs and that they spend the bulk of consumer premiums on healthcare instead of on advertising and large CEO bonuses."

"And we've already seen the fruits of that labor with a sharp slowdown in rise of premiums in many states across the country."
