The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will let state-based public exchanges give consumers the option of telling them about possible health benefits eligibility changes during the plan year through traditional mail.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) exchanges run by the parent of CMS, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). will require exchange users to tell the HHS exchanges about possible mid-year eligibility changes through the HealthCare.gov website, by using an in-person assister, or by calling a call center. The HHS-run exchanges will not let HHS exchange users report eligibility changes by mail.
