In response to a provision in the recently passed Affordable Care Act, The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology has organized a new Enrollment Workgroup under the backing of the HIT Policy Committee. The provision asks the HIT Policy and HIT Standards Committees to decide upon a set of standards that would assist in enrollment in Federal and state health and human services programs, including those offered by newly created health insurance exchanges.

Potential standards the Enrollment Workgroup could address include electronic matching across state and Federal data; retrieval and submission of electronic documentation for verification; reuse of eligibility information; capability for individuals to maintain eligibility information online; and notification of eligibility.

Aneesh Chopra, Chief Technology Officer, and Sam Karp of the California Health Care Foundation, will chair and co-chair the Workgroup, respectively. Membership is currently under consideration.
