The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services says an updateof a major exchange agent and broker registration program may affect 172,525people.

|

CMS, an arm of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services,gave that exchange producer count in a routine informationcollection review filing.

|

CMS runs the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Actexchanges that use the HHS HealthCare.gov exchange enrollmentsystem. The information collection review producer count includesonly the producers who work with HealthCare.gov, not producers whowork only with state-based exchanges.

|

The National Association of Health Underwriters has estimatedthat the HealthCare.gov exchanges were working with about 70,000during the 2014 open enrollment period.

|

In February 2013, when CMS first put the HHS exchange producerregistration program through an earlier review process, the agencyestimated that its exchanges could register as many as 254,095producers.
