OP-ED: Congress can deliver on its promise with a federal reinsurance program

In an op-ed for Modern Healthcare, ACHP’s Ceci Connolly called on lawmakers to implement a national reinsurance program for the individual market, arguing such a program would go a long way to curb rising health care costs for millions of consumers.
