The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) established marketplaces to allow individuals and small businesses to shop for health insurance in all 50 States and the District of Columbia. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) operates the Federal marketplace and is responsible for reviewing, approving, and generating financial assistance payments (i.e., advance premium tax credits and advance cost-sharing reductions) for the Federal and State-based marketplaces. During the 2014 benefit year, CMS used an interim process for approving financial assistance payments. We previously reviewed CMS’s internal controls under its interim process to ensure the accuracy of aggregate financial assistance payments and determined that the controls were not effective.
