As part of this public comment period, the Exchange has scheduled a meeting to be held via webinar and conference call to discuss the draft standard plans and provide an opportunity for public comment:
When: Wednesday, November 6, 2019 from 10-11am

The Exchange All-Committee meeting, already scheduled for November 6 at 10:00 am, will be repurposed to serve as the venue for this webinar on the standard plans.
The draft standard plan designs were developed over the last several months in coordination with the Standard Plan Workgroup, insurance carriers, state agencies, and interested groups. The Exchange has published one gold plan, one silver plan, and two bronze plans for public comment. In accordance with the Cascade Care legislation, the Exchange will require carriers to offer one plan at each metal level. The Health Care Authority will use the standard plan designs as the basis for the plans outlined in their procurement to be released in early 2020 for the public option plans.

The information posted on this site, including the PowerPoint presentation on the draft standard plans for public comment, will be presented during the meeting on November 6.
