1 Introduction1.1 PurposeThe Enhanced Direct Enrollment (EDE) API Companion Guide serves as a reference guide toassist an EDE entity with their EDE Application Program Interface (API) integration process.This document will outline the intent of the EDE initiative as well provide high-level, and insome instances detailed, information on the use of each EDE API. This document is notintended to be the sole source of documentation outlining EDE API integration requirements,and instead is intended to serve as a compliment to the other EDE integration documentation thatis available on zONE at llment-ededocuments-and-materials.1.2 OverviewClassic Direct Enrollment (DE) is a means by which private entities, such as web-brokers andissuers, provide a plan shopping and enrollment experience for consumers as an alternative toHealthCare.gov, while offering the same benefits and subsidies as the Marketplace. Currently,DE entities use the HealthCare.gov Classic DE program to facilitate enrollments in two ways: 1)they provide a shopping and enrollment experience directly to consumers through their ownbranded website, or 2) they provide a platform or type of portal for agents or brokers to use whenassisting consumers in shopping for and enrolling in coverage. When using Classic DE, theeligibility application is completed on Healthcare.gov, and then the consumer or agent/brokeruses plan comparison tools on the DE entity’s site to shop for and select a plan. This currentprocess is referred to as a “double-redirect” because when an eligibility determination isrequired, the consumer is first directed from the DE entity website to HealthCare.gov, and thenwhen the eligibility information is entered and the eligibility determination made, the consumeris redirected back to the DE entity website for plan selection and enrollment.Enhanced Direct Enrollment addresses the pain points faced in the current Classic “doubleredirect” DE process. EDE uses an API-based approach, which allows EDE entities to facilitatenot only the plan shopping and enrollment experience, but also allows EDE entities to facilitatethe eligibility application process and post-enrollment activities. Below, readers will findinformation pertaining to each EDE API.1.2.1 High-level End-to-End FlowBelow is the high-level end-to-end workflow for the EDE process. This process depicts thevarious frontend and backend interactions for EDE. The flow represents the recommended highlevel process for the EDE user experience.EDE FEBEflows 20200320.pdf1

1.2.2 Consumer APIsConsumer APIs enable stakeholders to search for, modify, store, upload, and retrieve consumerdata. These APIs are not specific to the eligibility application or enrollment.The table below outlines the consumer APIs that are available.Table 1-1 - Consumer APIsAPIBusiness CapabilityPersonSearchThis service allows for a stakeholder to search for a consumer’s existing applicationwithin the FFE. A user may search for a person using a specific set of data, outlinedlater in this document.Get DMIThis service provides a high-level overview of any Data Matching Issues (DMIs) tied toa consumer. A DMI is created when a consumer attestation does not match datareturned from a trusted data source during eligibility determinations. A DMI may affect aconsumer’s ability to enroll in a Qualified Health Plan (QHP). Consumers have a certaintimeframe in which to resolve DMIs, which is captured in a timer.Get SVIThis service provides a high-level overview of any Special Enrollment Period (SEP)Verification Issues (SVIs) tied to a consumer. An SVI is created when a consumerattests to being eligible for a SEP that requires verification. A consumer may berequired to upload documentation proving that he or she is eligible to be granted theSEP. Consumers have a certain timeframe in which to resolve SVIs, which is capturedin a timer.StorePermissionThis service is used to store a set of required data when a consumer has authorized anEDE entity or agent/broker to submit API transactions on his or her behalf.RevokePermissionThis service is used when a consumer wants to revoke the authorization for an EDEentity or agent/broker to submit API transactions on his or her behalfStore IDProofingThis service is used to store a set of required data when a consumer has successfullyID proofed at the EDE entity.DocumentUploadThis service provides the capability to store documents and corresponding metadata.For EDE, consumers may upload documents through an EDE entity to resolve either aDMI or an SVI.NoticeRetrievalThis service allows authorized EDE entities to retrieve consumer notices directly fromthe FFE document storage via a time-expiring URL.MetadataSearchThis service provides the capability to search for metadata records tied to a consumer.This service will return metadata for notices tied to a consumer.2

APIBusiness CapabilityPaymentRedirectThis API allows stakeholders to redirect a consumer to their issuer’s payment websitefor their binder payment.Event-BasedProcessingThis API allows EDE entities to ingest certain events for consumers as they occur, andsubsequently enables EDE entities to distribute corresponding communications to theirconsumers.1.2.3 Eligibility APIsEligibility API’s enable stakeholders to create, update, view, or submit a Consumer’s applicationwithout ever going to the Exchange. The Eligibility API’s also enable stakeholders to retrieveand determine eligibility for Exchange coverage; this includes eligibility for Medicaid,Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), Advance Premium Tax Credits (APTC), CostSharing Reductions (CSR), and Qualified Health Plans (QHPs). These APIs are primarily meantfor EDE flows, but some APIs may be exposed to additional external stakeholders.Table 1-2 - Eligibility APIsAPIBusiness CapabilityCreate ApplicationThis API is used to create an initial application for a consumer.Create Applicationfrom Prior YearApplicationThis API is used to create a prepopulated application for a consumer from a prioryear application.Update ApplicationThis API to modify or update an existing application, based on updates toattestations by the requestor.Add MemberThis API is used to add members to an application.Remove MemberThis API is used to remove members from an application.Submit ApplicationThis API allows a user to finalize and submit an application. The servicecomputes and/or re-computes events to ensure that all required fields are presentand valid as required to submit the application. Upon successful submission, theservice generates a submitted application that is immutable and can be used toprocess enrollment and other downstream processes.3
