.... CMS is hosting two different webinars on special
enrollment periods (SEPs) on Tuesday, June 28 and Wednesday, June 29. SEPs
provide a way for consumers who lose health coverage or experience other
qualifying events outside of Open Enrollment to enroll in or change health
coverage. Learn more about how to assist consumers with enrolling in coverage
through SEPs, and about the new SEP verification process.
·SEP Overview: Tuesday, June 28, 1:00 PM –
2:00 PM Eastern Time (ET)
The purpose of this webinar is to provide agents
and brokers participating in the Federally-facilitated Marketplaces an overview
of the SEP process, including changes for plan year 2016.
·SEP Verification Process: Wednesday, June 29, 1:00 PM –
2:00 PM ET
Earlier this month, CMS announced that, starting
June 18, consumers enrolling in coverage through five SEP categories will be
asked to provide documents to prove their eligibility for the SEP for which
they qualified, based on their application. This presentation will include more
information on this new verification requirement, as well as information about
how agents and brokers can help consumers understand the requirement and submit
documents if it applies to them.
Note: CMS has provided models of the Eligibility Determination
Notices (EDNs) that consumers will receive asking them to verify their
eligibility for an SEP. These model EDNs include lists of acceptable types of
documents consumers can submit to verify their eligibility for their SEP. To
download these model EDNs prior to the webinar, click here to navigate to the CMS.gov Notices
webpage. Then scroll down to “Eligibility Notice”
and use the “English” link that appears below “Special Enrollment Periods (2016 coverage) (June 2016).” This link will
also be included in the presentation.
