1 Coordinating Enrollment in Health Coverage in 2014 From Vision to Reality Nov , 2010 Rachel Klein

2 New Opportunities for Coordination Law requires: Web portal & online application Single, joint application No wrong door Standardized income rules (MAGI) Simplified eligibility & enrollment processes Data-matching to the maximum extent practicable

3 Joint Application & No Wrong Door What will no wrong door mean in your state? Who will determine eligibility for Medicaid, CHIP, and premium tax credits? How can your state best achieve collaboration, coordination, and communication among and between: state Medicaid, CHIP, Exchange, and Insurance agencies/departments, county-based eligibility offices, and relevant federal agencies

4 Joint Application & No Wrong Door (more) How will your state handle families with members who qualify for different programs? Will it also apply to non-health programs, like WIC, SNAP, etc.? Does your state have the IT it needs?

5 Standardized Income Methodology (MAGI) MAGI is a different animal than Medicaid agencies are used to Timing of income is an issue Medicaid requires point-in-time & premium tax credits use last years tax return (but this years income) States will need an easy way for families to present changes since last tax return

6 Transitions & Renewals Important to consider how families maintain & renew their coverage Need to align Medicaid renewal policy with exchange renewal as much as possible Use data-matching to make renewal easy
