These benchmarks are generally regulated by the state, and would be subject to state mandates applicable to the small group market. The mandates would be included in the state essential health benefits package if the state elected one of the three largest small group plans in that state as its benchmark.
Cost Assistance To make exchange coverage more affordable, certain individuals will receive premium assistance in the form of federal tax credits. Moreover, some recipients of premium credits may also receive subsidies towards cost-sharing expenses.
Premium Subsidies New federal tax credits were authorized in ACA to help low-middle income individuals pay for exchange coverage, beginning in The premium credit will be an advanceable, refundable tax credit, meaning tax filers need not wait until the end of the tax year in order to benefit from the credit advance payments will actually go directly to the issuerand may claim the full credit amount even if they have little or no federal income tax liability.
Subsidies or premium credits will be available for qualified individuals if they: Are lawfully in a state in the United States, unless their presence in the US is only for a specified period. Are not eligible for Medicaid.
Are not enrolled in an employer's qualified health benefit plan, a grandfathered plan group or nongroupMedicare, Medicaid, military or veterans' coverage or other coverage recognized by the commissioner.
Are not a full-time employee in a firm where the employer offers health insurance and makes the required contribution toward that coverage. An individual who qualifies for the premium credit and is enrolled in a silver plan through a Marketplace, will also be eligible for a costsharing subsidy.
As discussed above, total cost-sharing in exchange plans will be limited according to amounts specified in the federal tax code.
Given that most exchange plans will already be required to meet such limits, the cost-sharing subsidies will further reduce the total amount those individuals who qualify for the subsidies will pay for using health services.
To do this, an exchange is expected to collect and verify the information necessary to make the determination and share that information with HHS.
A state is responsible for creating and implementing its structure and governing system according to the guidelines outlined in the statute and reglations. Once approved states must make decisions regarding operational structure and governance. A state must operate both an individual and Small Business Health Options Program or SHOP Marketplace, but a state can either merge the two and operate both under the same administrative and governance structures, or elect to create two spearate structures for each program.
In addition, a state exchange is required to have in place and make publicly available a set of governance principles that include ethics, conflict of interest standards, transparency and accounting standards, and standards related to disclosure of financial interests.
A state exchange must also implement procedures as to how members of the governing board will disclose any financial interests. This would also apply in the event HHS determines that despite state efforts to establish a Marketplace, the Marketplace has not made sufficient progress to become fully operational by January 1, The final rule on the establishment of exchanges does not include provisions specific to FFMs, however, the final rule does indicate that federally-facilitated exchanges are required to carry out many of the same functions as state exchanges.
Additionally, FFMs and state-based marketplaces must adhere to many of the same standards outlined in ACA and the final rule. For example, state exchanges and federally-facilitated exchanges are both required to offer the same tools to help consumers access an exchange and assess their plan options through an exchange.
HHS has published some guidance that generally describes how a non-partnership FFM will operate within the framework established by ACA and the final rule.
The guidance generally describes how a non-partnership FFM will determine which plans will be offered through an exchange, how it will conduct eligibility and enrollment activities, and how it will operate the SHOP exchange.
HHS Guidance on the State Partnership Models To enter into a partnership Marketplace, a state must either manage activities related to plan management or consumer assistance or both.Cost overruns in hydrocarbon megaprojects a critical review and implications for research.
