Health Exchanges: Can They Be Ready by 2014?

HHS has yet to issue a detailed proposed rule on how the federal exchanges will operate, although a document with additional guidance was published in late November. A team from the agency in charge of eligibility and enrollment in the federal exchanges is expected to begin testing its processes soon with the help of insurance plans.

The agency also is working on how federal exchange websites will work to help consumers sort through their choices of health care plans based on their preferences.

And HHS must set up a program to establish the “navigators” in its exchanges — groups or individuals who get grants to help consumers pick plans.
