Essential Benefits State Benchmark Plans (PDF 7.9 MB, members only)
View state by state summaries of comprehensive AOPA “members only” research into the four benchmark healthcare plans in each of the 50 states to the fullest extent available to our researchers. This information is critically important to O&P practitioners in each state because the Department of Health and Human Services has ceded to the states the final decisions as to which services are included in the essential benefits package. While stating generally that HHS believes all plans should include O&P services, your state gets to select one plan so O&P practitioners in each state will want to track what O&P services are and are not available in the plans from which your state can choose. If any of the benchmark plans in your state do not include O&P benefits, start now to encourage adoption of a benchmark plan that does include O&P.
