The Qualified Health Plan (QHP) Issuer Certification Checklist is a document developed by Georgetown University’s Health Policy Institute that insurance regulators (and/or Exchanges) can use or modify for use in reviewing applications filed by issuers for approval as QHP issuers.
This template, prepared by Manatt Health Solutions, is intended to assist states in evaluating the options with respect to transitioning certain Medicaid and state-funded populations and programs into a post-ACA coverage environment with Medicaid eligibility for non-disabled adults under age 65 (potentially) expanded to 133% of the FPL and tax credits and cost sharing reductions available to individuals between 133% and 400% of the FPL (or between 100% and 400% in a non-expansion state).
This worksheet and considerations table can serve as a guide for states considering their own Medicaid expansion analysis. The Supreme Court’s decision inNFIB v.

Reasonable Compatibility Straw Models: Federal Requirements and State Options for Constructing a State’s Financial Reasonable Compatibility Standard

The 2014 Medicaid Eligibility Transition Toolkit is designed to assist states in systematically identifying issues and decisions they will face as they convert to 2014. The toolkit was originally provided to two states by the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) as part of the State Health Reform Assistance Network that is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. NASHP has updated the toolkit to be applicable to any state and to reflect the final Medicaid eligibility rules.
