Are You Ready? Updates From AHIP Conference

With Annual Enrollment (AEP) soon to be here are you ready?

As with prior years, CMS has issued an extensive readiness check list for plans to follow and guide them in preparation of the upcoming 2010 plan year. 

This year, with the multiple changes in regulation and continued scrutiny of marketing activities (see early post blog post from today), it is apparent there is much to do to ensure readiness on all fronts.  

CMS recommends plans self-audit so there are no surprises. 

While CMS has not provided the timeline for reporting readiness, as always, the sooner you begin the more confident you will feel. 

Support materials are from CMS available for download here.
