Renewing Coverage for 2015: Key Considerations
• Consumers who bought a health plan through Maryland Health
Connection in 2014 must renew coverage for 2015 to continue to
receive financial assistance or to determine eligibility for assistance
• Consumers who would like help with renewing have multiple options
for receiving assistance
• Consumers renewing independently must submit a new application at
www.MarylandHealthConnection.gov by December 18, 2014 to
ensure that coverage starts Jan. 1, 2015
• Consumers not successfully completing a new application at
www.MarylandHealthConnection.gov will receive a bill as of January
1, 2015 showing the cost of their plan without financial assistance

• Consumers are linked to the carriers’ provider
directory
Maryland consumers will be linked to the CRISP

Currently, CRISP relies on carriers to make error
corrections
Current Provider Error Correction Process
1. Providers report errors to CRISP
2. CRISP determines which carrier(s) submitted
the error
3. Each month, CRISP submits a Provider Error
Report to each carrier
4. Carriers follow-up with providers to resolve
errors
5. Carriers correct errors in subsequent biweekly submissions to CRISP

CRISP has received various feedback
detailing inaccuracies in provider data
Provider errors can be divided into two
categories:
• Demographics errors involve providers’
addresses, phone numbers, and office hours
• Network errors involve specialty and disputed
inclusion in a carrier’s network
30
Error Correction Pilot
CRISP is currently conducting an Error Correction Pilot
Unified portal where providers can view carrier-submitted
information and submit updates
• Demographics corrections (addresses, locations, and office
hours) can be made immediately
• Network corrections would be submitted to the appropriate
carrier(s)
CRISP is developing provider identity proofing
The Error Correction functionality is on-target to be
live by late 2014.
31
CRISP will develop appropriate “trust levels” with Optum to
ensure corrections made align with MHBE business goals
Develop “trust levels” with Optum to determine
which provider information is displayed
• Optum will trust CRISP data (over carrier data) for
approved demographics fields and make real-time
corrections
• Optum will trust MCOs and QHPs for network
corrections
32
Automated Carrier Error
Reports
33
CRISP is developing methodology for sending
automated Error Reports to carriers
Proposed File Requirements
Distinguish between Demographics and Network Corrections
• Carriers should update provider information based on Demographics
Changes
• Carriers should adjudicate Network Changes with carrier and make
changes in subsequent CRISP Input Files
Identify if information should be added or removed for a provider
The text file will be delivered to a SFTP location every day for which
there is an error correction submitted to CRISP for that carrier.
34
CRISP recommends a pipe-delimited flat
file
Proposed File Format
1. CRISP proposes a pipe-delimited text file.
2. The file will include identifying information about the
provider (e.g., first name, last name, and NPI)
3. Corrections will be tagged as either as
“Demographics” or “Network.”
4. Corrections will be tagged with “add” or “remove” –
followed by the relevant piece of information.

Next Steps
36
Next Steps
1. CRISP will distribute a final Error Correction File
Format and Delivery document
2. Carriers can respond with questions or suggestions
3. When development is complete, CRISP will invite
carriers to test functionality and provide feedback

Dental Updates
Michele Eberle, MHBE Plan Management
A service of Maryland Health Benefit Exchange
Renewal of 2014 SADP’s
Tax subsidies have been rarely applied to dental policies per the
National Association of Dental Plans (NADP)
Dental benefits maintain a HIPAA-excepted benefit status
Dental benefits are exempt from guaranteed renewability
Renewal notices are not applicable to SADP’s, but NADP has
encouraged members to use them
The FFM is including SADPs in their auto-renewal process
Md. Insurance Code Ann 15-122 (a) (4) includes the renewal
requirements for carriers and defines carriers as including dental
plans
About 7000 consumers purchased SADP’s through MHC in
2014, mostly family dental plans
CMS is borrowing the uniform modification of coverage test for
the purposes of recertification of SADP’s [CMS FAQ 2639,
7/3/14]
Renewal of 2014 SADP’s
Items being addresses
If a consumer wishes to reenroll and maintain their QHP but
change their SADP, how will the consumer be instructed to
do so?
If a consumer wishes to maintain their SADP but change their
QHP, how will the consumer be instructed to do so?
How will reenrollments occur if a consumer does not come
back through the MHC website for reenrollment? Will
coverage end? Will dental carriers need to automatically reenroll in the same plan?
What reporting requirements will MHBE have of dental
carriers for renewing members?
Are dental carriers to planning to send notices to members
regarding reenrollment?
