Government May Shut Down …… The Exchanges Are Open
This evening we received an email from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. “We are pleased to advise that the Federally-facilitated Marketplaces (FFM) and State Partnership Marketplaces (SPM) will open for business on Tuesday, October 1! On Tuesday, the side-by-side model, or “Marketplace pathway” will be available for FFM-registered agents and brokers to assist consumers. Using this pathway, an agent/broker will be able to assist a consumer as the consumer completes the application process on the FFM or SPM website.”
If you would like to see which Qualified Health Plans (QHPs) are available in the FFM in your state, you will be able to view them on 10/1 via the following links.
