Statement of Need: The Affordable Care Act establishes an initial open enrollment period beginning October 1, 2013, and annual open enrollment periods in subsequent years. CMS expects that updates or revisions to existing policy may be necessary based on our experience with the initial open enrollment. These updates would be implemented before the second open enrollment period begins.

Summary of the Legal Basis: This rule would address updates to provisions included in Title I of the Affordable Care Act.

Alternatives: None. Revisions made to the existing Exchange regulations would require rulemaking.

Anticipated Costs and Benefits: An estimate of costs or benefits will be completed once the necessary policy updates have been determined.

Risks: If this rule is not published, the Exchanges may not continue to function optimally.
