Welcome to Consumer Reports Advocacy

Consumer Reports is an independent nonprofit organization that works for a fair, safe and transparent marketplace.

Since we were founded as Consumers Union in 1936, we have advocated for the rights of all consumers. Now, we are united under the Consumer Reports name, bringing together our trusted testing, research, journalism, and advocacy.

We hope you will partner with us and our six million members for a better world.

Follow-up to MLR Quality Improving Activities (B) Subgroup meeting, NAIC Fall National Meeting

The subgroup has been urged to reopen the definitions used to calculate the medical loss ratio (MLR) under the federal Affordable Care Act (ACA). At this time, we do not agree that current definitions require new debate. Rather, the multi-stakeholder efforts to develop those definitions in 2011 remain valid and complete.
