NADP provided comments to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on the Georgia Section 1332 Waiver known as the “Georgia Access Model. (GAM)” If implemented, the GAM would eliminate the use of the Federal Facilitated Exchange (FFE) in the state and shift responsibility for marketing, enrollment, and education to brokers and plans through direct enrollment.
Reaffirming comments made in 2020, NADP recommended CMS reject the Georgia Access Model portion of the Section 1332 waiver which, as proposed, would reduce access to and enrollment in Exchange qualified health and dental plans in Georgia. Furthermore, increased medical and dental enrollment on the FFE since the waiver was developed highlights the functionality of the existing exchange platform.
