Journalist explains why a deep dive into comments on proposed regulations is worth time, effort

After the proposals for short-term, limited-duration plans and association health plans became public early last year, the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the federal Department of Labor accepted comments on the rules governing them.

Before the rules became final, Noam N. Levey reported extensively on the public comments federal regulators received on both proposals.

His review of comments from health care groups gave him a thorough view of concerns about the proposed rules from those who work in health care and those who would implement the new rules. Also, his work was useful to at least one law firm that cited his article in a lawsuit it filed challenging the rules.
