CU Comments on Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: Establishment of Exchanges and Qualified Health Plans; Exchange Standards for Employers

CU comments address the Department’s proposed interim rule for Establishment of Exchanges and Qualified Health Plans, specifically, §155.220(a)(3), the interim final provision that provides states with the option to permit agents and brokers to assist individuals in applying for advanced payment of premium tax credits and cost‐sharing reductions. CU also provides recommendations where guidance and/or further rule‐making could strengthen the rules governing how agents and brokers assist consumers with eligibility and enrollment into exchange plans.
