Program Attestations

To show compliance with FFE standards and program requirements, all issuers and their affiliates are required to submit responses to program attestations as part of their QHP Application.

Key Changes for PY2023: 
  • Issuers will submit responses to the Interoperability Attestation and Justification Form via the Supplemental Submission Module (SSM). 

Tips for the Program Attestations Section

  • You must respond to all attestation subsections.
  • If you only offer Medical QHPs for certification, respond Not Applicable to the Attestations required in the SADP-only issuers subsection. 
  • If you only offer SADPs for certification, respond Not Applicable to the Attestations required in the Medical QHP-only issuers subsection.
  • We strongly encourage you to respond Yes to the optional compliance plan attestation and upload a compliance plan that includes the Compliance Plan and Organizational Chart Cover Sheet. If you respond No to the optional compliance plan attestation, you must upload a justification form. 
  • You must upload supporting documents for your responses to the attestations.
  • Use the justification form only if you are submitting plans to the FFE using HIOS.
  • Use the State Partnership Exchange Issuer Program Attestation Response Form only if your state performs plan management functions.
