Free Webinar Wednesday, July 6 @ 1:00 PM ET.
1.2 CCB® CEU credit available with live attendance of this webinar.

“Title XXVII of the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act) contemplates that states will exercise primary enforcement authority over health insurance issuers in the group and individual markets to ensure compliance with health insurance market reforms. In the event that a state notifies the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that it does not have statutory authority to enforce or that it is not otherwise enforcing one or more of the provisions of title XXVII, or if CMS determines that the state is not substantially enforcing the requirements, CMS has the responsibility to enforce these provisions in the state.”
