Comments to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

The U.S. Regulations.Gov website is run by the federal government to solicit public input on policies of federal agencies. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is using the site to seek comment from the public on repeal-and-replace of the Affordable Care Act. It’s easy! Here’s how:

  1. Click on the link to go to the comment site on Regulations.Gov
  2. The site is seeking feedback in four areas:
  • Empowering patients and promoting consumer choice
  • Stabilizing the individual, small group, and non-traditional health insurance markets
  • Enhancing affordability
  • Affirming the traditional regulatory authority of the United State in regulating the business of health insurance

You can make comments in any category, but if you’re unsure which one to use, consider the “Empowering patients …” option — it’s broad enough for most comments and stories to fit.

3. Click on the “Comment Now!” button on the upper right-hand side of the page and tell HHS what you think.

There are currently only about 400 or so comments.

Be aware that your comments will be available to read online, although only your state will be shared.

Tell Congress what you think!
