We are legally required to give you this notice by applicable law and our agreement with the federal government.
We respect your personal information and want you to fully understand how we may use and share your information.
We must collect certain information about you, called Personally Identifiable Information ("Pll") in order to help you complete your application for health insurance on the Federally- facilitated Marketplace (or Exchange) ("FFM"). Pll is information that can be used to identify you or trace your identity. These are a few examples of Pll. This is not a complete list.
Additional details about the meaning of PII are contained in the government's guidance, OMB Memoranda M-07-16 (issued May 22, 2007)
We will use only the information that we need to help you obtain health insurance through the FFM and to provide Authorized Functions approved by the FFM, or other service as permitted under applicable law.
These are a few of the authorized functions that we may conduct. This is not a complete list:
We may only share your information as described in this notice. We may share your information with certain Federal or State agencies, the health insurance issuer that you select or subcontractors that help us provide services to you.
We must get your permission to share your information for any other purpose that is not described in this notice.
To successfully enroll in a Qualified Health Plan (QHP) or otherwise facilitate your receipt of Advance Premium Tax Credits (APTC's) or Cost-Sharing Reductions (CSR's), certain Pll may be required.
This is voluntary and not mandatory under applicable law; however, if you do not share this information with us, you may not be able to enroll in a QHP on the FFM. If an individual chooses not to provide certain PII in the course of enrolling or receiving assistance in enrolling in a QHP on the FFM, the accuracy of an individual's enrollment in a QHP, or receipt of APTC's or CSR's may be compromised and/or invalidated.
Yes. We are required to keep your information safe. We have developed privacy and security policies that we must follow to make sure that we protect your Pll.
