The Consumer Assistance Coordination Hub (CACH) project was created to support the work of groups that provide enrollment assistance. Working with national and local partners, CACH will:
- Provide resources and trainings on Marketplace and Medicaid policies and application processes, including how to maximize efforts during the shortened open enrollment period;
- Monitor Marketplace processes and other external events that affect enrollment to ensure that enrollment assistance groups can rapidly respond to changes; and
- Answer policy and application process questions.
Our national and local partners in CACH will allow CBPP to expand the training and other resources it provides through Beyond the Basics and provide in-depth information about specific topics. Resources and additional information are available below.
