Today, the National MLTSS Health Plan Association submitted a letter to the House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce regarding the Special Need Plans Reauthorization Act of 2017 (H.R. 3168). The letter recommends that Congress permanently reauthorize all special needs plans (SNPs), instead of reauthorizing for only five years. Needing to reauthorize SNPs every five years creates uncertainty around the permanency and stability of the program which may dampen state, beneficiary, and health plan participation.
