The Federally-facilitated Marketplace is administered by the federal government, under the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
The Federally-facilitated Marketplace is essentially a marketplace for individuals to shop for health insurance if they do not already have insurance coverage from another source. If individuals have insurance from another source such as employment, retirement benefits, or spousal benefits, they do not need to obtain it from the Marketplace.
Providers must contract with each of the Qualified Health Plans offered in the marketplace individually to participate fully in the Federally-facilitated Marketplace.
This process is similar to enrolling in insurance or managed care organization provider networks. See below the list of insurers participating in the Federally-facilitated Marketplace, and information about contacting them.
