Hey, Marilyn: Make PPACA work

Regulation decisions that seem minor could lead to major Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) compliance headaches.

Megan Grover Howell, a policy specialist at Group Health Cooperative, talked about one of those decisions -- on how groups should administer coverage billing -- in her company's response to a major batch of PPACA regulation proposals that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) published in November.

Scores of commenters said Marilyn Tavenner, the acting CMS administrator, and other CMS officials should have given members of the public more time to go over the proposed regulations.

Many other commenters talked about how they think CMS should apply PPACA to the student health insurance market.
