The Health Insurance Exchange is a Partnership Marketplace jointly administered by the State and federal government, under the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
The Health Insurance Exchange 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 Health Insurance Exchange.
This process is similar to enrolling in insurance or managed care organization provider networks. See below the list of insurers participating in the Health Insurance Exchange, and information about contacting them.
Visit our Provider Resources Section for more specific instructions to assist you in contacting health plans. Learn More: Health Reform & My Practice
