CHA to Attend Exchange Board Meeting Sept. 27

The California Health Benefits Exchange Board will hold a meeting Sep. 27 in Sacramento to discuss finalizing comments on the proposed federal rules regarding the establishment of exchanges and qualified health plans, and standards related to reinsurance, risk corridors and risk adjustment. The agenda and materials for the exchange board meeting have not yet been posted to the exchange website, but will be available at www.healthexchange.ca.gov/BoardMeetings/Pages/Default.aspx. CHA has shared its recommendations with the exchange consultants on exchange functions, such as developing a streamlined and coordinated eligibility and enrollment process; establishing a longer initial open enrollment period to allow sufficient time for people to enroll; and developing consumer-oriented support systems, including web-based information and an exchange call center.
