The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has updated the form public exchange builders use to describe their exchanges.
CMS is putting the new Blueprint for Approval of Health Insurance Marketplace form, CMS-10416, through a routine paperwork review process.
In a supporting statement, CMS officials said they have made submission of the form all-electronic, and created separate forms for states that want to simply run their Small Business Health Options Plan exchanges, rather than both the individual exchange and the SHOP.
In other PPACA exchange news:
- The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will be running a “Healthy Young America” Video Contest.
HHS is seeking high-quality videos that can persuade healthy young people to sign up for coverage through the new public exchanges.
Entries are due before Sept. 24.
