Update: FFM integration required before enabling EDE
To comply with CMS’ FFM account integration rules, Agents have to integrate their account prior to enabling EDE on their own. When HealthSherpa detects an unintegrated Agent account is attempting to enable EDE, we now display a dedicated page that explains this requirement and conveniently allows them to integrate before continuing on.
Additionally, once an Agent has successfully integrated, we automatically return them to the appropriate step in the EDE enable process.

Bronze-to-Silver Nudge Redirect
To comply with CMS Change Request 68, when consumers choose a Bronze plan, the platform will surface a prompt to reconsider their choice and ask the consumer and/or agent/broker to consider shopping for a Silver plan instead so the consumer can get better cost-savings and subsidies.
The pop-up must be answered either by re-shopping or choosing the “no” option. Consumers will have to re-select PCP and pharmacy selections as they choose a new plan.
