(ORANGE, Calif. − Sept. 5, 2013) — Quotit® Corporation, a leading national provider of Internet sales and marketing technology solutions for the health insurance industry, has been awarded a Federally Facilitated Exchanges Web Broker Entity (FFE WBE) Agreement with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
The FFE WBE Agreement provides Quotit access to the federal data hub, which enables the company to furnish tax subsidy, eligibility qualification information, and an enrollment channel to consumers in states not operating their own individual health insurance marketplaces, which are being set up as part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
“Under the new agreement Quotit will provide FFE WBE-compliant technology to independent, licensed agents – both large and small – empowering them to help consumers enroll in Federally Facilitated Exchanges,” says Chad Hogan, senior vice president at Quotit. “Indeed, Quotit’s range of licensed users includes community-based insurance professionals as well as three of the five Web Broker Entities announced publicly by CMS to assist consumers enrolling in the online marketplaces nationwide. We’re very excited to be a partner with CMS, the new online marketplaces, and our affiliated agents to help individuals and families find and enroll in coverage that meets their specific needs and satisfies the ACA individual mandate.”
During the past 18 months, the Quotit technology platform has produced health quotes for over 13.5 million individual American consumers through its network of subscribing community-based and national insurance professionals. “We understand many licensed agents who have a following in their local communities simply do not have the resources to create FFE WBE-compliant technology, security and privacy systems,” Hogan continues. “The underlying promise of our WBE-focused platform is millions of Americans will be able to utilize their trusted local agent to enroll in a Federally Facilitated Exchange in a secure environment,” Hogan concludes.
