In March, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) held a two day workshop to "study certain activities and trends that may affect competition in the evolving health care industry." In addition, the FTC requested comment on a very broad range of related issues (the breadth of questions can be examined in this Federal Register notice). AOTA staff attended the workshop, and submitted comments independently and by signing onto the Coalition for Patients' Rights' letter. AOTA's letter (available for download below) sought to broaden the FTC's conception of price transparency in an effort to expand awareness of the often inadequate and inaccurate information about health insurance coverage available to consumers. AOTA policy staff have identified a number of instances where information about coverage of therapy services for plans sold on the new health insurance marketplaces has been inadequate for consumers to make informed choices, or just plain inaccurate. AOTA is working with state associations to advocate for improvements, but also is engaged in broader advocacy efforts at the federal level, including by taking this opportunity to communicate with the FTC.
