CMS Releases Finalized Standards for 2015 Marketplace

Posted on: 5/20/2014

Earlier this week, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized the 2015 standards for all Affordable Care Act (ACA) entities. Some of the provisions include:

  • A non-exhaustive list of state requirements that do not meet the federal standards and will therefore be pre-empted
  • Circumstances when consumer assistance entities would be monetarily penalized for non-compliance
  • An outline of the federally facilitated Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP)
  • Clarification on the quality rating system for marketplace plans
