On August 27, 2010,
BIAA, as part of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD), submitted
comments to the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department
of Labor regarding the health care reform law implementation of Preexisting
Condition Exclusions, Lifetime and Annual Limits, Rescissions, and Patient
Protections, (otherwise known as the Patients' Bill of Rights).
CCD detailed support of the many patient protections outlined in the proposed
regulation and also suggested some language that would strengthen patients'
rights further. For full viewing, a copy of the document can be found
on our Web site.
