Plan Withdrawal

Use the Plan Withdrawal Form to withdraw plans as needed before the final submission deadline.

QHP Agreement and Plan Confirmation

Issuers intending to offer QHPs or SADPs in the FFEs, including issuers in states performing plan management functions, must sign the QHP Certification Agreement and Privacy and Security Agreement and the Senior Officer Acknowledgement, and complete the final plan confirmation process.

Data Change Windows

CMS may offer data change windows after the QHP certification period for issuers to make certain types of additional pre-approved changes to their QHP data.


CMS monitors QHP issuers for ongoing compliance with certification requirements. Issuers may be selected for a compliance review at any time during the year.
