State Tasks for Partnership Exchange

Manatt Health Solutions, with support from the State Health Reform Assistance Network, has prepared a high-level summary of the tasks that states must accomplish to achieve certification of a State Partnership Exchange for Plan Management and/or Consumer Assistance. These tasks closely track the Blueprint for Approval of Affordable State-based or State Partnership Insurance Exchanges, with detailed annotations of tasks directly from the Blueprint. The summary also includes “related” activities that are not reflected in the Blueprint, but will support State Partnership Exchange development. Finally, the document addresses State Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) agency tasks required to interface and coordinate Medicaid, CHIP and advanced premium tax credit/cost sharing reduction eligibility determinations with the Federally-Facilitated Exchange (FFE).
