WASHINGTON -- The National Association of Insurance and Finance Advisors (NAIFA) is hoping the courts will kill the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), but it is keeping up pressure on the medical loss ratio (MLR) front, just in case.
“The medical loss ratio [mandate] threatens a service industry of 450,000 people who are without alternative means of insuring that consumers received personalized assistance,” Diane Boyle, an assistant vice president at NAIFA, Falls Church, Va., said here during a panel discussion at NAIFA's annual meeting.
