AARP Statement on Announcement of Proposed Rules for Health Insurance Market Reforms

WASHINGTON, D.C. – AARP Executive Vice President Nancy LeaMond today released the following statement in response to the Administration’s proposed rules for health insurance market reforms:

“Today’s announcement is an important step forward in the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and in guaranteeing affordable insurance coverage for all Americans. AARP is pleased with the progress these proposed rules make in insurance market reforms, particularly limiting how much health insurers will be allowed to vary premiums based on age. We understand the importance of stopping insurance companies from charging exorbitant premiums to older Americans and this proposed rule will finally put limits on this discriminatory practice. Further, the proposed rules prohibiting insurance companies from raising premiums based on pre-existing conditions, health status, gender or occupation are other critical steps forward in guaranteeing access to affordable coverage.”
