HIV and Enteropathy
Pennsylvania State Insurance Exchange
The Pennsylvania Insurance Exchange (Marketplace) is the Federally-Facilitated Marketplace.
The Federally-facilitated Marketplace is administered by the federal government, under the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
General information about the Federally-facilitated Marketplace can be found at:
Learn more: Background
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.
HIV Providers:
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.
As an HIV provider, you may qualify for designation as an “Essential Community Provider (ECP).” The Qualified Health Plans participating in the Insurance Exchange (Marketplace) are required to contract with a minimum number of ECPs and Specialists to ensure network adequacy.
Visit our Provider Resources Section for more specific instructions to assist you in contacting health plans.
