Outreach and Enrollment

  • New Special Enrollment Confirmation Process – The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced another step that will “help enhance program integrity and contribute to a stable rate environment and affordability for consumers: a Special Enrollment Confirmation Process in the 38 states using the HealthCare.gov platform.”  For consumers who qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) due to change in health coverage status or other “qualifying life changing” events, documentation to verify eligibility to use an SEP is now required.

    Read more about the SEP Process.

  • Annual Survey of Health Insurance Marketplace Assister Programs and Brokers – The 2015 Kaiser Family Foundation survey of Health Insurance Marketplace Assister Programs and Brokers provided an overview of how assisters and brokers helped consumers enroll in health insurance coverage through in-person assistance. The Kaiser Family Foundation recently provided information to all Assister Programs and Brokers to participate in the 2016 annual survey.

    To participate in the 2016 Kaiser Family Foundation Survey, contact Karen Pollitz at KarenP@kff.org or at 202-654-1307.
