The Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, part of HHS, has released guidance that addresses the role of agents, brokers and navigators in health insurance exchanges. The role played by producers, including whether they allow agents and brokers to work with exchanges and serve as navigators, will largely be up to states. However, agents and brokers acting as exchange navigators "cannot be compensated for enrolling individuals into either [qualified health plans] or other non-QHP health insurance or health plans," according to the guidance.
