The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is floating a proposal for public commentary to automatically renew everyone who signed up for coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) during the open enrollment period that ended in March.

The rule would apply to everyone who signed up on a state website or on the federal marketplace site

The rule, which is open for public commentary for 30 days once published in the Federal Register, was developed in consultation with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.
