Wakely Consulting Group and KPMG

The recently released Proposed Payment Notice for 2017 formalizes a fourth model of marketplace – State-Based Marketplace/Federal Platform. Along with State Based Marketplaces, State Partnership Marketplaces and the Federally Facilitated Marketplace, states have a range of choices for what their Marketplace looks like. A key question for states will be how these different models help to achieve coverage goals. This issue brief written by State Network Technical Assistance Experts at Wakely Consulting Group and KMPG digs into the different models and how they stack up against a set of common goals for states.
