Text of OPM 2015 Annual Call for Applications and Recertification Submissions from Prospective and Current Multi-State Plan Issuers (PDF)
U.S. Office of Personnel Management [OPM] Link to more items from this source
[Official Guidance]
Feb. 5, 2014
"For 2015, our goal is to expand MSP coverage to at least five additional States, and to add one or more new MSP issuers or groups of issuers.... Beginning in 2015, we expect MSP issuers to offer both family coverage and self-only coverage at the silver and gold metal levels.... [CMS] intends to propose through rulemaking that Marketplaces may require that issuers temporarily cover non-formulary drugs ... as if they were on the issuer's formulary during the first 30 days of coverage, for coverage beginning on January 1 of each year, starting with the 2015 plan year... We encourage MSP issuers to accommodate the needs of new enrollees by covering a transitional fill of these drugs for new enrollees.... We encourage MSP issuers to cover three primary care office visits prior to meeting any deductible.... We expect MSP issuers to have sufficient numbers and types of providers in their networks to meet the needs of a diverse population, to monitor their networks continuously for quality and access, and to make prompt adjustments to networks as needed."
