Federally Facilitated Exchanges - a status report and implications
On March 1, 2013, the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services released lengthy and detailed draft guidance regarding the federally facilitated exchanges that will operate in the 26 states that have chosen not to establish their own exchanges or partner with CMS.

Although the guidance was issued in draft form, CCIIO and CMS allowed only two weeks for the public to submit comments and CMS has intended to start accepting issuer applications to the FFEs on April 1, 2013. The guidance sets forth the anticipated time frames for the various activities that an issuer will be required to perform in order to obtain certification as a qualified health plan. Final guidance was issued April 5, 2012.

Join Epstein Becker Green's Linda Tiano,  as she discusses the detailed provisions and stakeholder implications of the FFE guidance in a HealthcareWebSummit event on Wednesday, May 8th, 2013 at 1PM Eastern.
