Health Insurance Reform Commission. Clarifies that it is the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) or other appropriate federal agency that determines whether a proposed mandated health insurance benefit or provider exceeds the scope of the essential health benefits. The existing reference to the Exchange, also known as the federally facilitated Health Insurance Marketplace, is misplaced because the Exchange is a program, administered by CMS, through which health insurance is offered.
