The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires issuers in the Federally-facilitated Exchanges to complete a number of templates as part of their Qualified Health Plan (QHP) Applications. The Plans & Benefits Template collects health insurance plan information, including plan identifiers, attributes, dates, geographic coverage, benefit coverage, and cost sharing information. This video discusses the purpose of the template and the relevant add-in file, provides an overview of the template’s layout, and walks viewers through completing the data elements.
