Aug. 12—HFMA has posted a new fact sheet detailing a recent final rule on exchange assisters in its online Resource Library under reimbursement/Medicare.

The July 17 final rule from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) outlined various training requirements applicable to navigators, non-navigators assistance program personnel, and certified application counselors in healthcare insurance exchanges—also called health insurance marketplaces—mandated by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The final rule also created conflict-of-interest, training and certification, and meaningful access standards, and clarified that any licensing, certification, or other standards prescribed by a state or exchange must not prevent application of the provisions of title I of the ACA.
