Entities Approved to Use Enhanced Direct Enrollment

Enhanced direct enrollment (EDE) is a new pathway for consumers to enroll in health insurance coverage through the Federally-facilitated Exchange. This pathway allows CMS to partner with the private sector to provide a more user-friendly and seamless enrollment experience for consumers by allowing them to apply for and enroll in an Exchange plan directly through an approved issuer or web-broker without the need to be redirected to HealthCare.gov or contact the Exchange Call Center.

For additional information on EDE, please view the fact sheet, available at: /newsroom/fact-sheets/enhanced-direct-enrollment-pathway-health-insurance-exchange-coverage

For frequently asked questions about EDE, visit: /CCIIO/Programs-and-Initiatives/Health-Insurance-Marketplaces/Downloads/FAQs-EDE.pdf (PDF)

The public list of third-party entities approved to use an EDE pathway is provided below. This list is current as of May 12, 2022, but CMS will update the list as it approves more partners.
