comment period

The time during which public discussion of health care regulations is invited, e.g., by federal health care agencies. When new governmental rules affecting health care are enacted, their potential effects are usually discussed in advance during open meetings. During this period members of the public, health care insurers, hospitals, clinics, and other agencies make known their interpretation of the effects of these new rules.
