"[T]he trend toward ever-narrower networks pre-dates the ACA itself, and can be found in many Medicare Advantage plans and private health insurance plans offered by large employers. Many plans also are imposing overly restrictive medication formularies that may make it difficult for patients to afford the prescriptions that work best for them. The College believes that the federal government has a special responsibility to ensure that federally-qualified health plans (QHPs), whether offered through the exchanges created by the ACA, or through Medicare Advantage, do not create undue barriers to patients getting appropriate care from physicians they trust and the medications they need."
