The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Interoperability and Patient Access final rule requires Qualified Health Plan (QHP) issuers on the Federally-facilitated Exchanges (FFEs) to implement and maintain a secure, standards-based Patient Access Application Programming Interface (API). This will allow members to have easy access to their own health information and opportunity to allow others permission to access that health information.
