Register for Updates

CMS sends updates and information during the certification period in several ways: 

REGTAP

Register for the REGTAP portal to get CMS technical assistance related to Marketplace and Stabilization programs that are not a part of the Marketplace Plan Management Group (MPMG). Registered users can access the library training resources, webinars, and the inquiry tracking and management system. 

Registered REGTAP users who are affiliated with an issuer organization and elect to receive notifications will automatically be subscribed to Issuer Insights, a semi-monthly e-newsletter that highlights upcoming deadlines, new trainings and webinars, and updates on guidance.

Email Blasts

To get QHP Application and certification announcement blasts from CMS, including information about the release of corrections in the Plan Management (PM) Community, make sure your contact information in the PM Community is current and accurate.

Contact Information in the PM Community

Make sure your organizational contacts are correctly listed in the PM Community so that you don’t miss important communications from CMS about your QHP Application.

Issuers should manage their contacts within the Organizations tab of the PM Community.

CMS uses the contact list in this tab as a distribution list for sending QHP certification-related communications to issuers’ organizations.

PM Community partner users are encouraged to keep this list up to date, so that all relevant members of their organization receive the appropriate communications.

To create a new contact:

  1. Click “New” in the top-right corner of the “Contacts” box or list display. The New Contact box will display and your Organization will auto-populate.
  2. Fill in at least the contact’s name and email address.
  3. Click “Save” to save the contact and return to the previous screen, or click “Save & New” to save the contact and create another new contact.

Remove Contacts

To request to delete a contact:

  1. Click the dropdown to the right of the contact’s email address and click “Edit.”
  2. When the “Edit Contact” box displays, scroll down and click the checkbox next to “Delete.”
