CMS/HIX Updates

CMS has released the business service definition (BSD) to be used by the Federally-facilitated Exchange for the Determine Medicaid and Tax Households Business Service Definition for posting on CALT.  This BSD defines the individual’s Medicaid and Tax Household when an application for insurance affordability programs is submitted to the Exchange.  This business service includes implementation of rules to achieve the following results:

  • Each tax filer’s Tax Household, using data for the appropriate coverage year(s).
  • Each applicant’s Medicaid Household, based upon Tax Household, tax filing status and other family information for the appropriate coverage year.
  • Guidance and exception messages when a Medicaid or Tax Household cannot be determined for the applicant.

The BSD can be found with other FFE Eligibility/MAGI BSDs in the Exchange Eligibility and Enrollment Guidance folder in CALT.

The intended audience for this BSD includes state business, technical, governance, and project management stakeholders.  Specific users should include software or system developers and testers.
