The National Partnership for Women & Families represents women across the country who are counting on successful continued implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). We appreciate the opportunity to comment on the proposed Summary of Benefits and Coverage and Uniform Glossary Required Under the Affordable Care Act published on February 26, 2016. The Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC) plays a critical role in ensuring that consumers have the tools and information they need to compare health plans accurately on the metrics of benefit design and cost, and we look forward to continuing to work with the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and the Treasury (the Departments) on this issue.
