Text of CMS FAQ on Qualified Health Plans and Guaranteed Availability Standards: Issuer Responsibilities (PDF)
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services [CMS], U.S. Department of Health and Human Services [HHS] Link to more items from this source
[Official Guidance]
June 3, 2014
Dated June 3, 2014. Excerpt: "As we explained in our FAQ of May 16, 2014, all non-grandfathered individual market health insurance products must be guaranteed available to all individuals, unless an exception applies. Issuers may direct consumers who wish to enroll in a QHP to the Marketplace for enrollment, and are not required to market any QHP for sale outside of the Marketplace. Issuers who intend a QHP to be primarily for sale in the Marketplace are not required to create a designated pathway for off-Marketplace enrollment, and will satisfy the guaranteed availability standard if they enroll consumers who wish to enroll outside of the Marketplace using a process employed entirely on an ad hoc basis."
