U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire has introduced a health care affordability package to reduce patient costs and expand access to critical medical services.
Shaheen, a Democrat, says the goals are to lower premiums, reduce deductibles, drive down out-of-pocket costs and improve the health care system.
One part would reduce deductibles and co-pays for low-income and middle-income patients by expanding the cost-sharing reduction assistance that insurers are required to provide to individuals enrolled in marketplace coverage. It would appropriate funding to reimburse insurers.
