All issuers in FFE states must complete the accreditation attestations in the QHP Application and authorize the release of their accreditation survey data from the accrediting entity, if applicable. Issuers in states performing plan management functions and SBE-FPs should comply with the requirements specified by their state.

Key Changes for PY2022: 

  • CMS anticipates resuming activities related to the collection and reporting of quality improvement information for the Quality Improvement Strategy (QIS) during the PY2022 QHP certification period. 

Tips for the Accreditation Section

  • Only provide information on accredited products in the same state and for the same legal entity that submits the QHP Application.
  • Provide accrediting entities with your legal issuer name and the HIOS Issuer ID used in your QHP Application to ensure the HIOS Issuer ID is included in the data file the accrediting entity provides to CMS.
