In the early days of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), there was an expectation that most (if not all) states would establish a State-Based Marketplace (SBM).

In our new whitepaper written by Jane Good, Founder, JGood Advisors, we will be discussing Enhanced Direct Enrollment (EDE). EDE is a unified enrollment experience that contains an updated, easy-to-use, portal for Marketplace members. EDE will eliminate the current “double redirect” to HealthCare.gov, using a series of CMS-based APIs to process eligibility and changes behind the scenes. This new portal will allow issuers and agent/brokers to establish and maintain relationships with members from initial enrollment, through mid-year changes, and into renewal. The goal of EDE is to provide consumers and health insurance brokers with alternatives to shop for and enroll in coverage, providing the data and tools needed to effectuate and maintain policies.

Paper-based enrollments and renewals slow down the process and leaves too much room for errors that further delays the sales cycle. Manual processes can be replaced with cloud-based digital solutions that integrate with a carrier’s current IT infrastructure. This datasheet demonstrates some ways Softheon can help address common challenges.
