Agents and Brokers:
FFM Registration Completion List for Plan Year 2016 is Now Available
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is pleased to announce that the first Agent and Broker Federally-facilitated Marketplace (FFM) Registration Completion List for Plan Year 2016 is now available on the Agents and Brokers Resources webpage. This list includes National Provider Numbers (NPNs) of agents and brokers who have completed plan year 2016 registration requirements for the FFM as of October 15, 2015. Issuers will be able to review the list to confirm that agents and brokers with whom they have agreements are authorized to assist consumers in selecting plans through the FFM.
Agents and brokers who completed all of the plan year 2016 agent and broker registration and training requirements for the FFM as of October 15 should review the list to confirm that their NPN is included. Users can search NPNs by clicking the arrow in cell A1, or by using the “Ctrl + F” (or “Command + F”) keystroke. All NPNs are self-reported by the agent or broker during FFM registration and should be validated against state and/or other National Association of Insurance Commissioners records to confirm state licensure. Agents and brokers who have completed registration after October 15 should check back soon. CMS posts an updated list on a bi-weekly basis.
