CHOP partnered with the Children’s Hospital Association in a joint comment letter on the Multi-State Plan Issuer Letter — related to multi-state insurance plans that are offered through the health insurance marketplace.

The letter provides suggestions to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management regarding essential health benefits, habilitative services, network adequacy and continuous coverage for pregnant women and children, particularly those children with complex and/or chronic medical conditions.

It is important for CHOP to voice support for children to ensure that they receive appropriate insurance coverage to allow them access to the medical care that they require.
