The passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) resulted in significant changes to the ways Americans will access and purchase health insurance. A key feature of the ACA, and one that may have the biggest impact on state budgets and personnel, is the requirement for states to have a health insurance exchange (HIX) up and functioning by January 1, 2014.
This paper outlines the steps which states must take should they elect the Federally Facilitated Exchange (FFE) model and includes a high-level roadmap for implementing the FFE at the state level. Cognosante summarizes the recommended actions for states to adopt the FFE model and highlights key areas and actions required to achieve successful implementation.
