The Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum (APIAHF) submits this comment letter in response to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Notice of Benefit and Payment parameters for 2021 proposed rule (“proposed rule”). We raise concerns about several issues impacting consumers, and particularly those who are racial and ethnic minorities, limited English proficient, have health literacy and literacy challenges and may not be familiar with the U.S. health care system. In particular, we strongly oppose the auto reenrollment proposed changes as they will further compound barriers to attaining eligible coverage that consumers already experience.
